On Feb. 13, Cub Pack and Boy Scout Troop 303 from Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church (UMC) participated in the Sunday morning services.

The units are sponsored by the church and this year the Boy Scouts of America are celebrating 101 years of service.
Wateree District Commissioner Jim Bradshaw and Wateree District Executive Larry Parrish presented several Cub Scouts with the God and Me and God and Family Awards. This is part of the Programs of Religious Activities with Youth (P.R.A.Y) program which requires young people to study scripture and then design service projects to put into action what they have learned. Wilson Pope, and Austin and Tommy Sanders received the awards.

Bradshaw and Parrish presented two leaders of the troop and members of the church the God and Service Award with the help of Art Graham, Walter Smith, Mayor Jeffrey Graham, Carol Brown and John Shell.

Richard Guffy has been the Scout Master of Troop 303 since 2000. He has been involved in Scouting for more than 25 years. He started his scouting career in Statesville, N.C. when his son, Alan, joined the Tiger Cub program and moved to Camden in 1998 and joined Troop 303, where Alan completed his trail in scouting and received the rank of Eagle. Richard has served many roles in the church.

Linda Smith has worked in scouting for many years alongside of her husband, Walter. Linda was the Cub Master of Pack 303 while her two sons participated and worked their way up the ranks of Eagle. Linda has served in many jobs in the church.
The God and Service Award is a national recognition awarded by churches and national youth agencies cooperating with P.R.A.Y. It is given to acknowledge distinguished volunteer service by adults in ministry to young people through service to the church and one or more of the national youth agencies (Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A.).

Susan White is the first Girl Scout leader to earn this national award in Kershaw County and the Lyttleton UMC.
