  • Jesus and Me (grades K and 1) – consists of five group sessions and the awards ceremony in May. Parents work with the Scouts to help their Scout think about the story of his/her life, to think about Jesus’ life and to think about how Jesus is a part of the Scout’s life. On meeting dates, the counselor will talk with the Scouts and have them share projects with the group.

  • God and Me (grades 1, 2, 3) – consists of five group sessions and the awards ceremony in May. Parents work with the Scouts to help their Scout think about the story of his/her life, to think about Jesus’ life and to think about how God is a part of the Scout’s life. On meeting dates, the counselor will talk with the Scouts and have them share projects with the group.

  • God and Family (grades 4, 5, 6) – will compare families and pizza. The Scouts will make a pizza as they study how their families can grow together in layers in God’s love, like a pizza is built in layers. The program consists of 6 work sessions, a pizza party during the last session and an awards ceremony in May. NOTE: Cub Scouts can start the classes as 5th grade Webelos and complete them as 5th grade Scouts BSA.


Scouts are eligible to earn all five awards during their scouting careers – and we encourage them to do so. However, Jesus and Me does not count toward the 4 Star award in place of God and Me.

The student workbook for each level will be available at the first meeting of each group. Parents and Scouts DO NOT have to buy the student book ahead of time. The leaders will ask that the students bring money (cash or check made out to Bob Elliott for $4.50) for each Scout to the first meeting to pay for the student workbooks. Other than optional awards, this is the only cost.
