Boy Scout Troop 920
Centenary United Methodist Church
Scouting has had a very distinguished history at Centenary United Methodist Church. Troop 920 is one of the oldest continuously registered Methodist scout units in North Carolina.
Over the years, Centenary’s units have involved approximately 1,500 young people (over 900 in the Boy Scout unit alone), and as many families have been positively affected by the Scouting movement.
These programs involve many volunteers giving countless hours to these youth. If you know of someone who might benefit from these programs or if you are an adult who could give some time to help our youth become better Christians and Americans, please contact the church office or one of the volunteers listed.
Boy Scout Troop 920 currently is a very active Scout troop with approximately 33 enrolled members. During the school year, the Scouts have weekly meetings and have camping trips every month, except December. During the summer, they attend summer camp at Raven Knob Scout Reservation. They also attend various Boy Scout high adventure camps in such places as New Mexico, Florida, Colorado, Canada, and the Bahama Islands.
Scouting embodies the American way of life. Through individual achievement, each scout is taught the value of hard work, the ability to stand on one’s own two feet, and the fun of a great program.
Centenary is proud to include the scouts and their leaders as part of its Christian fellowship.
