Online Town Hall Meeting for the Boy Scouts: Decision & Implications

September 15, 2021

There will be a town hall for all Mountain Sky churches that host Boy Scout troops/packs on Wednesday, September 22, at 5:30 PM Mountain Time.

This town hall is to follow up on the information sent previously regarding the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) bankruptcy and its impact on your local congregation. We have heard from several people requesting greater clarity about the importance of the nature of the agreement between your local church and the BSA and the legal and fiscal liability and risks that your local church might face if you continue to be a chartering organization.

MSC Chancellor Richard Marsh will be in attendance and prepared to speak. To register for the meeting, follow the link below. All questions must be submitted in advance allowing us preparation time and sharing synthesized information to move us forward. There is a place for your questions on the registration form. Once our list of participants is completed, we will forward the Zoom meeting credentials. Please submit by 5:00 PM Mountain Time, Friday, September 17th.
