The United Methodist Church has designated the second Sunday in February as Scout Sunday. Local congregations are encouraged to observe Scout Sunday as specified or pick a alternate date close to it.
The observance provides an opportunity for churches to recognize the Boy Scout pack, troop or crew they sponsor or the individual scouts within their church.
The Boy Scouts of America celebrated their 100 years of scouting in 2010.
