So I just heard about a church that canceled Scout Sunday this year because of the current battle going on in the BSA.

Just wondering...if there were many?

We had scout Sunday. But we also had a sermon about how it was so hard to make a change, but sometimes a change could be for the better, and not to be afraid of the unknown.

I don't think that was an accident.

Scout Sunday is traditionally held on the first Sunday in February (although some places switch Sundays).

Scouts and leaders are encouraged to wear their uniforms and participate in acts of serving the congregations, in ways such as greeting people, passing out bullitins, flag placement (if this is part of your service), etc.

None of the churches around here cancelled. But the troops tend to meet in the Lutheran and Methodist churches, which I don't think would cancel over the current issue.

My Diocese holds a joint "Boy Scout/Girl Scout" Sunday about mid point between the BSA founding and the GSUSA founding (March 12), although it is for BOTH, 80% of it is BSA centric.

Some parishes hold separate ones as well.

We had a part of the service dedicated to the Boy Scouts this past Sunday as we have chartered Troop 1 since 1919. Pretty cool.

Interesting. I've never heard of it. I just googled and learned that among Presbyterians and Methodists who usually celebrate communion on the first Sunday, scout Sunday is held on the 2nd Sunday of February. However, like I said, I've never heard of it. We don't sponsor a troop, and none of the boys at my church are in scouts.

No.

We have had an inclusive, open minded group to my eyes.

I hope they didnt since that would have been very unfair to Girl Scouts. When we did attend church, my dd wore her uniform for Scout Sunday. It isnt just for Boy Scouts.

There were boys in uniform present but they didn't take part in the service.

Yes, it was cancelled and replaced with Camping Sunday, which IMO is more appropriate anyway as our denomination runs excellent camps and a camping program and they should be promoted more than an outside organization. I know my pastor has been quite torn up about the BSA as he's been dedicated to it, but as he told me, he's more dedicated to justice.

I really think the name Scout Sunday is a misnomer, Scout Sunday is just for cub/boy scouts, not for Girl Scouts. Girl Scout Sunday is traditionally during Girl Scout Week (3/10-3/16 this year). Our Girl Scouts always have one of the masses on that Sunday that is designated for them, and they wear their uniforms, and are the readers, ushers, and usually about half of the choir.

kmk thanks for the clarifying for me. It has been many years since we went to church and did Scout Sunday for GS's.
