Whom Should We Choose?

boy scoutsI remember 10 years ago when Danny Wright and Allen Richards told us about a Boy Scout troop that had lost their chartering organization and made the appeal for our church to become their new sponsor.  A partnership was formed that has been a great blessing to many boys and to our church as well.

Each year on Scout Sunday, Boy Scouts wear their uniforms to their places of worship in recognition of the founding of the Scouts in the United States.  We are honored that the boys of Troop 957 annually attend our church on that day and assist in the service.

Today they honored us with a small statue of a reverent scout.  Around the base of the statue are the words to the Scout Law: A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.  May our partnership continue for many more years and may Troop 957 continue to grow and help good boys become responsible men.

On another note, around every two years we go through the process of selecting shepherds for the congregation.  As with every spiritual undertaking, the first step is prayer.  Be in prayer every day for this process that God might be glorified and the church blessed.

    Great sermon. It sparked a really good lunch conversation. I know I am not ready to be an elder. And that is not my goal. But my goal is to be a Godly man that is looked at as a servant..in whatever capacity I am serving. I have a long ways to go, but I pray that I will continue to grow in my spiritual maturity. Thanks for continuing to challenge us to be better!
