One of the many ways Westminster serves youth in the Wooster-area community is through scouting. We currently are the host location for 8 different scout troops that are leading, nurturing, and caring for the personal and leadership formation of youth and young people. Part of our mission to be an Intentionally Inclusive faith community is to open our doors to scout troops, and to be a place that welcomes all youth.
Every February, we invite our scout troops, leaders, parents, and volunteers to attend a Scout Sunday worship service where we celebrate the accomplishments, mentoring, and growth of scouts and those who lead them. It is a special time to recognize the relationships we have with these troops, and to reflect on the ways in which being an open and inclusive church set a positive example in the lives of emerging young leaders in our community.
