Opening Ceremony 2024 (Cancelled)

Dear Youth Leaders and Members,

It is with a heavy heart that we inform you of the unfortunate cancellation of the Opening Ceremony scheduled for this Saturday, 1/20/2024. The decision is beyond our control, as the Philadelphia school district has closed all school activities for the weekend due to inclement weather.


We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and understand the anticipation and excitement surrounding the event. Please know that this decision was not made lightly, and the safety and well-being of everyone involved are our top priorities.


In times like these, we lean on our faith. May God cover all our youth departments as we embark on this new year. Despite the cancellation, let us consider the 2024 year open, trusting in the grace of God to guide us through as we prepare the hearts of our Adventurers, Pathfinders, and Young Adults for their heavenward journey.

We appreciate your understanding and flexibility during these circumstances. May God bless and protect each one of you.

It's Giving Seen Saved Set Apart

But you are chosen people. You are the King’s priests. You are a holy nation. You are a nation that belongs to God alone. God chose you to tell about the wonderful things he has done. He called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. At one time you were not God’s people. But now you are his people. In the past you had never received mercy. But now you have received God’s mercy.

1 Peter 2:9-10
