FUMC has a long history with the Scouting organization, sponsoring the longest continual troop in Lubbock. In 1924, the congregation at FUMC started a relationship with the Boy Scouts of America. This relationship continues today, as FUMC and BSA celebrate 90 consecutive years of investing in young lives.
The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation's largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.
Girl Scouts helps girls develop their full individual potential; relate to others with increasing understanding, skill, and respect; develop values to guide their actions and provide the foundation for sound decision-making; and contribute to the improvement of society through their abilities, leadership skills, and cooperation with others.
