founding of Bethesda Presbyterian Church in 1769, our outreach
ministries have been a hallmark of Bethesda's mission. We
continue to reach out to the surrounding community through various programs that
seek to meet people at their level of need, while encouraging and nurturing their
spiritual growth. Whether the need is for fellowship, Bible study, youth activities, advice from a Parrish Nurse, transportation
to church, Christian childcare, or simply a warm and loving visit
from our pastor, Bethesda has both organized programs and dedicated
individuals who are committed to ministering to others and sharing God's
love. We hope that you will come and participate in the many
activities of worship, song, learning, and fun. Come be a part of our growing
family and celebrate with us God's abundant blessings and His amazing grace.
Men of the Church
The Boy Scouts of America believes that no young man can develop into a responsible young man without a
strong relationship with God.
We at Bethesda Presbyterian Church share this belief and reinforce what a child may learn with his family in his own church by integrating Christian values with the programs offered by the Boy Scouts of America.
The Scouting program at Bethesda Presbyterian Church serves all young men ages six or 1st grade through eighteen years of age. We start with the first grade student in our Tiger Cub program which is a parent and son program that introduces the child to the fun and adventures of Scouting. Second and third graders participate in the regular Cub Scout program while earning the ranks of Wolf and Bear. Fourth and fifth graders enter the Webelos program and begin learning the skills that will prepare them for Boy Scouting.
When a boy reaches eleven years of age, enters the sixth grade he is eligible to move up to the Boy Scout program.
It is in Boy Scouting that we seek to provide an environment where young boys can develop into responsible young men by combining a Christian values and the principles found in the Boy Scout Oath/Promise, Boy Scout Law, Boy Scout Motto and Slogan
