UMC Scouting Religious Awards

Posted on Dec 12 2016 - 1:57pm

"From:  UMCOS Religious Relations Committee ... My name is Ernest Perry.  I am the Religious Commissioner for the United Methodist Committee on Scouting (UMCOS) of the North GA Conference for the Atlanta/College Park District and am your Conference Scout resource.  I am a resource for you whenever you have questions about Scouting at the Methodist Conference level.   

I hope you all doing well as we approach Christmas.  I am sure you all are busy as it is that time of year.  But I hope you may be able to carve out a few minutes this week or next to reach out to a church or two in your district to suggest they nominate someone for a Methodist Scout award.

I also serve as a Member-at-Large for the Southern Crescent District for Scouting. I was in attendance at your November District meeting.  The reason I wanted to reach out to you is that this is the time of year when churches nominate individuals, units or their congregation for awards for their outstanding contributions to the Duty-to-God part of scouting.  There are several awards possible (which don't get a lot of publicity).  You can find the awards, criteria and nomination forms at: http://mcos-northga.org/adult-scout-congregational-recognition/ 

If you have anyone in mind who you would like to nominate from your church, please let me know and proceed to fill out the appropriate form. If you have a candidate please submit your nomination(s) by Dec 30, we should be able to get them processed and returned to you by Scout Sunday (Feb 5).  

You will want to email me at perr937@bellsouth.net a copy of your application(s) by then and we’ll be sure to secure the appropriate Conference signatures before forwarding to the GCUMM for review, approval and processing.  

If you would like, we will have someone from the UMCOS (United Methodist Committee on Scouting) attend your Boy Scout Sunday Celebration to present the award(s).  Thanks again for allowing me to introduce myself and suggesting you look at these awards.  I look forward to meeting you personally at some point in the not too distant future.

Service to God through the Scouting Ministry,

Ernest E. Perry
