One of the oldest ministries of IPC, Boy Scout Troop 28 was formed by the Men’s Club in 1923 and initially housed in a Scout hut on the back corner of this lot. Our Scouts perform many services for our church ranging from service projects at the Children’s Fresh Air Farm to hosting our annual Shrove Tuesday Pancake Supper. We thank them for their role in the life of our church.

Hear from IPC Members on Being a Boy Scout at IPC
Richard Monk, IPC Member
" 'A Scout is Reverent.' The concluding tenet of the Scout law reflects the organization’s commitment to a Scout’s faith development. Surely this is one reason IPC has supported Troop 28 for nearly 100 years. There are many good Scout troops in the area, but none is better for the youth of IPC than Troop 28. The Troop provides an opportunity for IPC youth to continue their faith development together, and with others, as well as learn outdoor skills, leadership, and personal responsibility. It has been a blessing to watch my son grow through Scouting in the place that we worship. If your family has any interest in being involved in Scouting, there is no better place to do so than at Troop 28, supporting one of the oldest ministries of IPC."
George Taylor, IPC Past President of Congregation
" I have had the privilege of having two Eagle Scout sons in Troop 28. The Troop provided hours of rich fellowship and learning with them as well as with other dads and sons. The most meaningful experience for me in Troop 28 has been teaching the God and Country course every few years. Our Troop has extensively promoted the 12th point of the Scout Law, 'A Scout is Reverent' as a critical aspect of Scouting. From service projects at the Children's Fresh Air Farm, to the Pancake Supper and Scout Sunday,
the Troop has given our family another meaningful point of contact with IPC."
