Troop 39 Principles

All members of Troop 39 must abide by the Scout Oath and Scout Law.  We are committed to developing our Scouts to be young Christian men.

Our main principles are:
  • We are a Christian troop.  
  • We worship Jesus Christ through prayer, devotions, and commitment to Christian values that are central to how we carry out Scouting.
  • We recognize the critical role that Dads must serve in helping their sons develop into Christian men.  
  • Dads are to be active participants in the Scouting program.  Both parents support the Scouting experience but mothers are encouraged to play a supportive role in the troop, while dads mentor our scouts and guide our leaders.  We see Scouting as an opportunity to provide a strong Christian male influence in the lives of our Scouts.
  • We expect each scout to always seek to do their best. Colossians 3:23-24 says that "Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men; knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance   It is the Lord Christ whom you serve."  
  • As a troop, we seek to do our best at all times and the Troop has set high standards for work, conduct, and performance.
