Duty to God!

Greetings Scouts               God & Me/God & Family Registration

While 2011 is winding down, I am really looking forward to (and setting up for) a really AWESOME 2012… to kick things off right, OUR VERY FIRST program is our District’s own Duty to GOD programs for Cub Scouts. Now, there are several different Duty to God programs for almost every faith in the Scouting program, and almost ALL of them have their own Religious Emblem and Awards program… Here is a description of just two of them for Protestant Christians in Cub Scouts:

Each year the Etowah District, in conjunction with several Churches around the area, sponsor two GREAT programs that help our Cub Scouts learn about faith. One is called GOD & ME for First through Third graders. In the God and Me program (A Protestant Christian program), boys learn about the fundamentals of their RELATIONSHIP with God, Prayer, and faith. It involves lot’s of fun games, songs and crafts, but best of all time spent with fellow Cub Scouts learning about the bible. This is a 5 week course which takes place on Sundays from 4PM – 5:30PM. Boys need to attend with a parent and be present for all 5 weeks in order to earn the God & ME Award.

The NEXT level after God & Me is the GOD & FAMILY Award for Webelos Scouts. This course helps 4th and 5th graders learn about the experience of God and how faith works in our relationship with our families. Boys will learn how to help their own family grow in God’s love and they will also learn and memorize the Ten Commandments. God & Family begins on Sunday, January 8 and lasts 7 weeks.

Both of these courses are offered locally here in the Etowah District at First Baptist Cumming on Sawnee Drive in Kidstown. Be sure to arrive early for your first meeting. Registration goes through Christmas, but if you register early you can get a DISCOUNT (Early Bird registration discount ends on December 2, 2011). You can get a registration form on the Etowah Website here.

Learn more about YOUR faith and how you can earn the religious emblem by downloading this Duty to GOD brochure.

God Bless! and see you out there!
