“A Scout is reverent”. All Scouts demonstrate this portion of their scout law by being faithful in their duty to God. Thirteen cub scouts from Packs 59 and 519 were recently recognized for additional efforts as they completed the “God and Me” religion course, held at Church of the Holy Cross on Sullivan’s Island during the month of May.

Cub Scouts Tyler Harper, Jackson Holbrook, Ashton Howard, Daniel Killough, Cole Libhart, John Peterseim, Jason Roberts, John Robinson, Mason Suggs, Rivers Ulmer, Brock Webb, Finn Webb, and Davis Wood, met on a number of Wednesday nights at Holy Cross to complete the first, second and third grade Protestant curriculum, recently updated by Programs of Religious Activities with Youth (P.R.A.Y.), and facilitated by Ron Plunkett of Pack 519 and Carol Killough of Pack 59.

The curriculum is designed to help children become best friends with Jesus and tell their story of “God and Me” together. It is the first program in the God and Country religious growth series for Protestant young people. With the completion of this course, each boy earned a medallion and his religious square knot award badge. This badge is one of only two badges worn on their uniform for life as it transfers to the Boy Scout uniform as well as the adult leader uniform. (The other is the “Arrow of Light”, which is typically earned by a Webelos scout in 5th grade).
