Scout Sunday observed at First Baptist Church of Le Roy

post by Howard B. Owens in Boy Scouts, Le Roy, Troop 6021

Article and photos submitted by Mary Margaret Ripley.

The tradition of Scout Sunday, a Sunday that has been set aside to celebrate the close connection between the ideals of the church and the goals of Boy Scouting, goes back to the fourth anniversary of the founding of the Boy Scouts of America on February 8, 1914.

Each year since, Boy Scouts from around the country have gathered on the second Sunday in February to worship God together. This year, Troop #6021 and its charter organization, the First Baptist Church of LeRoy, joined together to mark the 101st anniversary of Scout Sunday with a special worship service and reception held on February 8, 2015.

Pastor John Partise, himself an Eagle Scout, led a worship service entitled “Fly Like an Eagle” that focused on the virtue of reverence as the most important of the 12 points of the Scout Law. Together with being trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, and clean, the Scout Law establishes the high ideals that every scout must do their best to aspire to.

“I find it interesting that those same 12 ideals are also what every follower of Christ should aspire to be,” said Pastor John in his sermon.

During the service, both the 2015 Charter and a surprise award for Highest Percent Attendance at Camp Dittmer, the Boy Scout Resident Camp, were presented to Scoutmaster Bryan Colton and Committee Chair Carol Colton by Pastor John and a delegation from the First Baptist Church.

Following the service, the church hosted a reception for the boys and their family members that included a hand-assembled display of 50 years’ worth of Boy Scout memorabilia.

“We really appreciate our charter organization. I believe First Baptist Church is a great fit for our troop,” said Carol Colton during the reception.
