The purpose of Scouting is to provide youth training in character, citizenship, and mental and physical fitness. We have four scout units here at Asbury UMC. They are sponsored by the Methodist Men’s Group. We have a Venture Crew, a boy’s and girl’s Scout Troop and a Cub Scout Pack. In total, we have 58 boys and girls registered and 15 adults assisting in various capacities.

The two scout troops and the Venture Crew meet Tuesday nights at Asbury. The Cub Scout Pack has 4 age level dens that meet twice a month on Sunday afternoons plus a pack meeting the second Monday of the month. All units have very active programs throughout the year. Asbury councilors conducted two groups through two of the four religious emblem awards last year.
