Celebrate Scout Sunday 2020

Scout Sunday is coming February! What is Scout Sunday you ask? The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on February 8, 1910, based on the program started by Lord Baden Powell in England on August 1, 1907. Scout Sunday began being celebrated in the middle 1940s. Scout Sunday is the Sunday preceding or closest to February 8th. The Saturday following February 8th is Scout Sabbath.

The Scout Sunday tradition was started to make people in houses of worship aware of Scouting, and to give the opportunity to Scouts to live out their “Duty to God” pledged each week.

The Scout Law says that a “Scout is Reverent” and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their “Duty to God”. These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith. The purpose of this activity is to help our Religious Partners who are not currently celebrating the anniversary of Scouting with their Scouting families and wish to add a “Scout Sunday” service.

This is a great opportunity to strengthen the bond between units and their charter partners.

Be sure to share pictures of your celebrations with us!
