Scouting has been a vibrant youth program in the United States for over 100 years, and has been supported by the Methodist Church through unit chartering and sponsorship for almost that long.  Parker United Methodist Church has supported Scouting for 44 years, starting with Boy Scout Troop 16 in 1973, and more recently with Cub Scout Pack 369 and Venturing Crew 16.  The Cub Scout and Boy Scout programs focus on young men, while the Venturing program focuses on Co-Education programs for youth 14 to 21 years of age.

The Mission of the Boy Scouts of America is to prepare young people to make ethical and moral choices over their lifetimes by instilling in them the values of the Scout Oath and Law.

Scouting’s Vision is to prepare every eligible youth in America to become a responsible, participating citizen and leader who is guided by the Scout Oath and Law.

Our Scouting programs serve over 150 youth, with the above mission and vision statements serving as their guiding principles.  Each unit meets and conducts activities year-round.
