Calvary Presbyterian Church has been the Charter Partner for Pack 29 since 1947 and for Troop 29 since 1949. This Sunday, we celebrate Scout Sunday by involving the Scouts of both the Troop and the Pack in the worship service and joining together for the Souper Bowl of Caring to raise funds for ICAAP.
The Boy Scouts of America annually celebrates its founding on February 8, 1910. The program, started by Lord Baden Powell in England on August 1, 1907, was brought to the U.S. by William Boyce. Scout Sunday was added to the Scout celebration in the mid-1940s.
The service will be rich with tradition and fine musical contributions from the organ and the Chancel and Children’s Choirs.
The Rev. David J. Hanna will deliver the sermon Wilderness Survival.
The Israelites believed that God had brought them out of Egypt, but this was not the journey they had planned. So they complained. It happens to us all the time. We make our plans, but life doesn’t cooperate, life doesn’t always play along.
Following the service our youthful missionaries will have soup pots ready to receive your contributions at the exits from the sanctuary following the service.
As part of the Souper Bowl of Caring, this local mission project will donate 100% of all donations to benefit Indiana County Community Action Program (ICCAP) to be used to replenish the food pantry shelves for distribution throughout Indiana County.
Please join us after the service for fellowship and light refreshments in the Chalice Room next to the Sanctuary.
We look forward to welcoming the Boy Scouts and newcomers alike to worship with us!
