Boy Scouts

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character, trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops personal fitness.

 

For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

In 1924 Troop 2 moved its charter to Court Street Methodist Episcopal Church with 25 boys.

In 1939 Court Street changed to Court Street Methodist Church.

In 1952 Court Street Methodist Church burned and Troop 2 moved to Beth Eden Church Evangelical United Brethren, with 21 boys.

In 1970 Beth Eden Church changed to Beth Eden United Methodist Church and we have a fanatic relationship to this day.
