Cub Scout Den 434 voted to change their meeting location to the church and requested that Holy Trinity become their chartering sponsor. The activities of Den take place in the Sunday school rooms in the Annex of the Church, have access to the playground and occasionally meet in the Memorial Hall for larger assemblies. This new partnership is re-introduced every year to the parish on Scout Sunday, the Sunday before 8 Feb. All scouts and leaders are represent the pack at worship.
The Scouts are invited to set up tables to sell popcorn in Memorial Hall during the coffee hour following worship that Sunday and the Cub Scouts are invited to recruit new members on Rally Day. The Rector has also offered to provide religious instruction toward merit badges to any of the troops that might want it.
Father Brown commented, “This is a partnership, not a landlord - tenant agreement. It is our hope that these young people gain from meeting in a house of worship and the youngsters of our parish will be attracted to scouting as another way to live out their faith in service.”
