Scouting at Tabernacle

Tabernacle UMC proudly charters 3 units of the Boy Scouts of America and also supports numerous Girl Scout units by providing space for meetings.

Scouting provides fun, fellowship, and training to our youth from Kindergarten through 20 years years old.  Scouting is a year-round program that emphasizes honesty, self-reliance and respect, and builds character, citizenship, and personal fitness.

Our Scouts have also helped support the church through numerous projects and activities such as volunteering and offering displays at our annual Block Party, construction of the outdoor chapel, improving parsonage flower beds, and organizing the library and storage areas.

If you have a son, daughter, grandson, or granddaughter who may be interested in becoming a Scout in any of the programs at Tabernacle UMC, or if you would like to become a leader, please contact one of the following for more information:
