Cub Scouts is in full swing. Several new families have joined us this year, so we are getting to know them as we welcome them into our community.
In September, 80 of us braved the cold nights and spent two nights camping on the peaks, where the kids participated in cooking outdoors, campfire programs, building forts, hiking, team building games, building campfires, a worship service and so much more. What a great way to build community!
Our big event in October was the bike rodeo. The boys showed up with their bikes and helmets and worked on bike riding and safety skills before going on a trail ride. One 7-year-old was able to join us even though his twin brother was at home sick. He asked to take his training wheels off near the beginning of the rodeo, and by the end was riding all over the parking lot. He couldn’t wait to show off his new skills for his mom when he returned home. What a blessing to have the opportunity to be a part of that memory with him!
Our first Pack meeting took place near the end of October. Our Cubmaster, Patrick, presented on having joy in Christ, and the boys were recognized for their achievements up to this point. The boys are really looking forward to a laser tag outing in November, and in December we will be doing a service project at one of the nursing homes in Flagstaff.
