Scout Sunday 2-5-2017

A Scout is Reverent.

Scout Sunday allows our troop the opportunity to show our appreciation to our hosts at St. Stephen Lutheran Church in Stow. Troop 273 has been been with St. Stephen Church for over 50 years. During Scout Sunday, our Scouts serve as greeters and ushers for both morning services.

Our Scouts even participated by reading from Scripture during the service.

This Scout Sunday we were very pleased to witness the presentation of the Servant of Youth Award to our very own Stephen Hodges. Mr Hodges has actively served both the Church and the Boy Scouts of America for more than 10 years.

To receive the Servant of Youth Award, the recipient must:

1. Be an active member of a Lutheran congregation OR be an active member of another Christian congregation who serves Lutheran young people through a civic youth agency affiliated with a Lutheran congregation.

2. Have a minimum of five years of service to the church.

3. Have a minimum of five years of service to one or more civic youth agencies (BSA, GSUSA, AHG, CFUSA, 4- H).

4. Be one whose Christian lifestyle is a model for young people.

5. Encourage young people to participate in the spiritual growth opportunities in their congregations.

6. Promote the religious growth programs to young people.

7. Recruit adult volunteers, especially Lutherans, to give leadership to civic youth agency programs.

8. Be fully trained in his/her area of responsibility.

9. Reflect one’s Christian faith and the position of his/her church body in discussions and meetings of the civic youth agency at every level at which he/she is involved.

Congratulations Mr. Hodges, and thank you for your dedication and continued service!
