Sharing Wooden Crosses, Scripture and Invitation to Easter Services

BSA Scout Troop 197 is chartered under Fellowship Church and meets here on Monday nights. Danny and I each received $20 as part of the “Generosity Adventure” and we matched the funds to purchase 50 wooden crosses. We stained and painted the crosses, drilled holes, added John 3:16 to the crosses, and created an invitation to join the church for Easter services and/or any other Sunday services. Danny, as chaplain for the Troop, made them available at the scout meeting on the Monday night prior to Easter. Scouts and their parents took the cross and invitation with them that evening. We pray that the invitation encouraged some to attend church on Easter or some future Sunday. We plan to encourage scouts to attend church and/or Sunday School and will continue to explore stewardship opportunities.
