BALLSTON SPA – The Ballston Spa United Methodist Church recently hosted Troop 1 and Pack 1 for Scout Sunday.

The Scouts planned and delivered the entire Sunday service for the congregation.  Eagle Scout Stephen Larson delivered the sermon: “The Gift of Scouting.” Troop leaders noted that the Scout Law, which includes the guiding principles of the youth organization, says that a “Scout is reverent” and the Scouts of all ages promise to do their “duty to God.” These values strengthen youth character in their family, community and faith, troop leaders said.

Troop 1 is one of the longest continuously chartered troops in the United States, chartered out of the Ballston Spa United Methodist Church since 1913.  Cub Scout Pack 1 began it’s activities in 1960.  For more than 100 years the Scouting program offered by this Church has touched the lives of many boys, young men, and adults alike.

Troop 1 invites boys ages 10 to 17 to join us any Monday evening during the school year at 7 p.m. at the Ballston Spa United Methodist Church for a meeting and find out what scouting is all about.  Enter through the door in the rear of the church into the Fellowship Hall.  Parking is in the back and side lot.  Our meetings are held in the Fellowship Hall.
