How Successful was your Scout Sunday?

Posted on Feb 6 2017 - 11:02am

Scout Sunday is more than an opportunity to wear cargo pants to church!  Take advantage of the public awareness raised by Scouts across the district and talk with your pastor about scouting.  Ask about potential service projects for the youth, find new volunteers in your community, and invite leaders in your church to join you for an outing to see what they're sponsoring.  -- from Zach Fisher

West Gary, a member of the Board of TLACP (The Learning Academy of College Park), and a College Park Resident, College Park United Methodist Church member & Eagle Scout has reached out to us with this message:  "I am on the board of TLACP (The Learning Academy of College Park), which operates out of the education building of the College Park United Methodist Church.  The Center Director, Ricci Lewis-Johnson, has asked the church to coordinate a Family Workday on April 8th at 9AM.  The goal is to improve the play area for the children, install a raised garden, and improve the existing raised gardens.  She will be sharing her sketches with us soon, and I expect the church will respond in normal fashion to help as much as they can.  I thought this might be a good service opportunity for the Scouts.  I’m not sure if your Troop is interested in participating, or if you have Scouts who need service projects for rank requirements.  If you are interested in participating, please let me know."  West Gary, TLACP, 1805 Harvard Ave, College Park, GA. 30337, Phone: 404.766.9252.
