Cordele First United Methodist Church hosted Boy Scout Troop 270 and Cub Scout Pack 270 during their annual Scout Sunday Service on February 11.  Scout Sunday gives the church a chance to show their appreciation for our Scout program.  It gives the Scouts a chance to thank the church for their support.  Cub Scout Pack 270 meets on Monday evenings at the church from 6:30-7:30.
Reverend Larry Rollins opened the service by having the congregation greet the people around them. He then turned the program over to Troop 270 Senior Patrol Leader Wesley Fletcher to have the audience rise for the presentation of the colors and lead the Pledge of Allegiance. Cub Scout William Bridges led the Scouts to the alter and lit the candles. The colors were presented by Color Bearers Korey Watts and Jacob Frost. Following the Pledge, Wesley had the color guard post the colors and led the Troop in the Scout Oath and Law.
Following a musical interlude by the church’s bell choir and the regular choir, Brother Larry asked Life Scout Benjamin Nipper to provide the opening prayer and lead the Lord’s Prayer. The Scouts then passed the collection plates before Brother Larry delivered his sermon, “It’s Four O’Clock Somewhere.”
Members of Troop 270 who participated were Landon Atkins, Dalton Baker, Simon Baker, Wesley Fletcher, Jacob Frost, Benjamin Nipper, and Korey Watts. They were assisted by Webelos Scout Jake Atkins and Cub Scout William Bridges. The Troop’s adult leadership that participated included Scoutmaster John Frost, Assistant Scoutmaster Britt Brinson, Troop Committee Chair Terry Fennell, and Troop Committee Members Jody Fletcher, Gene Baker, and Brady Atkins.
Cordele Boy Scout Troop 270 meets each Monday evening, 6:30-8:00 at the Historic Cordele Boy Scout Hut.  The Hut is located at 1101 South 3rd Street.  The Troop is chartered by the Cordele Kiwanis Club.
