UoS Cub’s Duty to God PPT

Last week, I had the opportunity to teach at Circle 10 Council’s University of Scouting … including course CUB033 Duty to God:

  • What the BSA says about Faith – in order to prepare leaders for some of the questions that parents will ask
  • Fundamentals of the Religious Awards programs that are available to Scouts through PrayPub
  • Planning a Religious Study and a Pack Worship Service
  • A sample service given in my Pack

Here is the PPT from the course.

If you use it to teach a course, here are two requests for your consideration.  1) please let me know how it might be improved and 2) please point people back to ScoutingForGod for supplemental content and insight.
