A Scout Is Reverent

The Boy Scouts of America maintains that no member can grow into the best kind of citizen without recognizing an obligation to God and, therefore, recognizes the religious element in the training of the member, but it is nonsectarian in its attitude toward that religious training. Its policy is that the home and organization or group with which the member is connected shall give definite attention to religious life. Only persons willing to subscribe to these precepts from the Declaration of Religious Principle and the Bylaws of the Boy Scouts of America shall be entitled to certificates of membership.

First Baptist Church Denbigh

First Baptist Church Denbigh, our chartered organization, has a number of ways our scouts and their families can express their reverence to God.

The Association of Baptists for Scouting
(ABS)

The Baptist denomination is considered to be the largest world communion of evangelical Protestants. In the United States, one in five Christians reports membership in a Baptist church. There are over 220,000 Baptist congregations worldwide representing over 110 million members.

Members of the Baptist church have been profoundly involved with scouting. At the end of 2010, the Baptist denomination’s involvement in Scouting included 71,324 Cub Scouts in 2,045 packs, 34,062 Boy Scouts in 1,900 troops, and 3,049 Venturers in 337 crews.

 The Association of Baptist for Scouting was founded in 1954 on the principles of the common goals of scouting and the moral teachings of faith-based (Baptist) churches.

The mission of the Association of Baptists for Scouting is to bring youth to Christ through a scouting ministry. They encourage and help Christian organizations maintain and sponsor Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, and Venturing Crews so they will continue to expand their outreach and ministry through scouting.

Their diversified membership includes church and community leaders, and professional and volunteer scouts. Although it is their main emphasis, they do not exclusively serve Baptist churches.

Their goal is to have a substantial impact on our representative churches and communities by increasing youth involvement. They also assist churches and units in recognizing and awarding youth and adults for their service and spiritual growth.

The current goals of the Association of Baptists for Scouting include having 5,000 scouting units registered to Baptist churches, have at least 5,000 scouts complete the religious emblems program through P.R.A.Y., recognize at least 150 pastors and lay members with the Good Shepherd Award, and having a fully functioning Joe C. Carrington Society in support of Baptist Scouting. 

On July 3, 2012, the scouting units at First Baptist Church Denbigh officially joined the Association of Baptists for Scouting.

Being a member of the Association of Baptists for Scouting, the scouts in our unit are eligible to participate in the religious emblems program through P.R.A.Y. Our leaders receive quarterly newsletters from the association, training every two-years, and eligibility to earn the Good Shepherd Award. Our unit becomes eligible for the Baptist Unit Award of Excellence. 

Programs of Religious Activities for Youth
P.R.A.Y.

P.R.A.Y. is a not-for-profit organization whose national board of directors includes representatives from Protestant and Independent Christian Churches and the national youth agencies. Their mission is to foster the Christian growth of children, youth, and families through churches and youth serving agencies.

P.R.A.Y. encourages collaborations between churches and youth agencies to benefit young people. Both organizations have unique resources in carrying out their work with children and youth, but when a congregation and a council work side-by-side sharing their resources, more young people can be served more effectively. Both organizations, working together for youth, can reach objectives not attainable by either working alone. P.R.A.Y. has developed several resources to encourage such collaborative efforts.

P.R.A.Y. is best known for religious awards programs. The P.R.A.Y. program helps young people to develop a deeper relationship with God and to understand how God is active in their lives and in the world around them. It is a Christian Education resource that uses Bible lessons paired with service projects to help young people to not only grow in Christian faith but also express their faith by reaching out in love and in service to others. P.R.A.Y. encourages families, youth agencies, and Protestant congregations to use the P.R.A.Y. series to foster spiritual growth in children, youth and families.

The religious awards program consists of four age-appropriate programs. Individuals in the 1st - 3rd grades participate in the God and Me program. The God and Me curriculum is designed to help children become best friends with Jesus and tell their story of “God and Me” together. 4th and 5th grade students participate in the God and Family program. The God and Family curriculum is designed to help youth understand the importance of family and God’s role in a healthy family. The God and Church program is the program that students in middle school participate. The God and Church program will lead young people on a journey. It will be a faith journey with three parts: meeting Jesus, worshiping God, and witnessing and ministering for Christ. High school students participate in the God and Life program. The God and Life curriculum is the final program in the P.R.A.Y. series. After being introduced to Jesus as their best friend (God and Me), learning how the family is to grow strong in God’s love (God and Family), and studying the church as the body of Christ (God and Church), students in the God and Life program will seek to understand their call to a life of discipleship.
