2018 Scout Sunday Observances

In Scouting, our highest duty is to God as demonstrated by the first lines of the Scout Oath.  Boy Scouts and Cubs alike explore their reverence as the final point of the Scout Law and in rank advancement.

In February, we have the opportunity to publicly demonstrate this duty through attendance in a Scout Sunday event.  Units with religious institutions as chartered organizations are encouraged to work with their Chartered Organizational Representative to organize a Scout Sunday worship service.  Likewise, Scouts are encouraged to attend worship services at their own place of worship.  Attendance at either worship service in uniform is sufficient to obtain the patch.

2018 will continue the series of Columbia-Montour Council Scout Sunday patches inspired by the stained glass windows of sanctuaries which participate in a Scout Sunday worship services.

Considerations for unit leaders:

  • Speak with clergy well in advance to incorporate your Scout Sunday date (February 4th) your annual unit planning and to allow clergy to incorporate into their worship schedules.   Follow-up with clergy in early January to confirm plans.
  • Encourage Scouts to work on their Religious Emblems in the fall/early winter so that they may be awarded their Emblem at a Scout Sunday service.
  • Offer for the Scouts to perform light duties in the worship service if appropriate.  Scouts may be allowed to be ushers, greeters, read scripture, give the children's sermon or be involved as acolytes at the worship leader's discretion.
  • Allow Scouts to attend with the unit (if applicable) or independently in uniform at their own house of worship.
  • If attending as a unit, consider submitting a picture of the Scouts in attendance to the newspaper.  It provides great publicity for both the congregation and Scout unit.
  • Consider providing photos of stained glass windows to be used as inspiration of the 2019 Scout Sunday patch.
