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. We currently charter Pack-369, Troop-16 and Troop-2025.
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.

The Pancake Supper is held annually on the Tuesday before Ash Wednesday. The event for 2021 is canceled due to COVID restrictions.
The Pancake Supper is a major fund raiser for troop 16 and enables them to take some amazing trips that strengthen character and improve survival skills. We thank Parker UMC for the many years of providing space for the scouts to meet and hope to see you at the supper next year!
