Scouting for Food Initiative

Pack #149 thanks the congregations and community for their support of this year's Scouting for Food initiative by the Baltimore BSA. 290 lbs. of food were delivered to the Food Bank located at Faith Community/Eastern UMC for distribution. Thanks for helping the boys do a good deed, earn community service hours and make a difference in their world!

Brownies, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts

6 troops from NE Baltimore presented about countries the girls learned about while recognizing the international World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts. Faith's Brownie troop invited members of the Kenyan Christian Fellowship Association to share their childhood experiences with the girls and adults. Toni invited Peace Corps representatives to join us to describe their time serving in other countries and taught the girls a new game. Our Junior and Cadette troops learned about The Maldives - a timely topic with current climate change. Other countries were Norway, Japan, the Dominican Republic and South Korean.

Young Worshippers

Every Sunday morning, the younger worshippers at Faith Community are given a brief lesson that illustrates a scripture in the middle of worship service. Our Youth Leader engages our young worshippers with open ended questions and props to help the little ones relate to the Words of God. Afterwards, our younger worshippers continue to reflect on the Sunday Lesson in Sunday School, while their parents and grandparents continue to worship in the sanctuary. This, this is where children belong, Welcomed as part of the worshiping throng. Water, God’s Word, bread and cup, prayer and song: This is where children belong.

Scouts Place Flags at Oak Crest for Memorial Day

For several years now, Faith Community’s Cub Scout Pack #149 has set out American flags around the perimeter of Oak Crest retirement community in Parkville. They go into the ground for 4th of July and are picked up a week later. Many residents stop the boys to say how much they appreciate the community service. This year, we included members of our Brownie Troop 260 and families to decorate Oak Crest for both Memorial Day and 4th of July, dodging thunderstorms along the way. As an added bonus, we all enjoyed the beautiful grounds and greated residents out walking and visiting. One favorite spot was the pond surrounded by sheltering trees and near the resident gardens. Scouts enjoyed seeing ducks, hearing frogs and seeing fish in the pond. By special permission, scouts were allowed to catch and release fish in the pond on our final visit for the summer. Having a captive audience, so to speak, was an exercise only in how quickly one could unhook the fish and rebait the hook. Truly an exciting first experience for some scouts, although not indicative of the usual patience required! To Learn More, leave a Comment below.
