The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States, with more than four million youth members in its age-related divisions. Since its founding in 1910 as part of the international Scout Movement, more than 110 million Americans have been members of the BSA.

The BSA goal is to train youth in responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance through participation in a wide range of outdoor activities, educational programs, and, at older age levels, career-oriented programs in partnership with community organizations. For younger members, the Scout method is part of the program to teach typical Scouting values such as trustworthiness, good citizenship, and outdoors skills, through a variety of activities such as camping, aquatics, and hiking.

Parkway Hills UMC is proud to have its own pack of Cub Scouts, Pack 164, and its own troop of Boy Scouts, Troop 164. Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts meet every Monday night at 6 PM. Our activities include many familiar to all scouts and parents of scouts, including Akela campouts, Pinewood Derbies, Order of Arrow, and The Arrow of Light. Scouts of all ages are involved in a variety of service projects for our church and our community.

Scouting is an important ministry, and if you're interested in becoming a scout or interested in becoming a Scout Leader and helping shape the lives of young people in a positive way, contact Chris Gibbs at  or at 601-398-7455. We are blessed at PHUMC to be associated with this outstanding organization and to have the opportunity to support its activities.
