Scout Projects at Westminster
Scouting is active at Westminster. We have been lucky to be the beneficiary of Boy Scout Eagle projects through they years, and anticipate some Girl Scout Gold Award projects in the near future. Listed below are some of the more recent projects completed for our church by our scouts. For more information on our scout groups, see our Ongoing Mission page.
Playground Information Board
The construction and installation of an outdoor information board near our playground entrance was led by Boy Scout Owen Kearney in July 2020. Our playground area is a popular place for families in our church and nearby community.
In November 2019, Boy Scout Ben Miller coordinated the building and installation of a "blessing box" on the church grounds near the office. This box is intended to provide needed resources to our nearby community. The resources are primarily canned food products like soup, pasta, tuna and vegetables. The public in need will have access to the items via the Blessing box, which is a wooden structure, like a giant birdhouse. Church members and neighbors can share in this mission by helping supply canned food items year round. Also, others things that can be included in Westminster’s Blessing box are new or used clothing such as jeans, sweatshirts, socks etc. In addition, personal hygiene items like toothpaste, hand soap, toothbrush, shampoo and the like are welcome.
Updated Youth Room
For his Eagle Scout project, Braxton Via updated our senior high youth room. He oversaw the reorganization, painting and decorating of this large classroom, which also included the installation of a reclaimed wood wall.
Free Little Library
The construction and installation of a Free Little Library near our playground entrance was led by Boy Scout Joe Kearney in September 2017. The Little Library is a small wooden box where books are left free for people to take and read, and free for people to leave for others to enjoy.
