Wow PA-0011 – Chartered in 30 Days!
March 14, 2018 – Congratulations Troop PA-0011 at Pine Grove Church, Bowmansville, located in Brecknock Township in Lancaster County. You have become the 1st Troop in Bowmansville, the 11th in our Susquehannock area, the 25th in PA, and currently the 52nd in the Northeast Region. I think you guys have set a new chartering record, from pre-chartering to fully chartered, in the Northeast, if not in the entire USA. PM Joe Hudson and I look forward to supporting and serving your Christ-centered, Church-Owned and Operated Ministry.
We love the meaning behind your Troop Number 11; Gen 1:1 tells us how outdoor adventure had its start and lays the foundation for the rest of the Bible (and any meaning we have in life), and John 1:1 clearly connects Jesus to that beginning and the fact that He is God. We felt these were foundation verses for our boys as they develop a Biblical worldview.
