Scoutmaster Lee Corbin and Senior Patrol Leader Joshua Adams shared the history of scouting within the United Methodist Church. They also shared its importance in the development of boys into great leaders and effective citizens, and of the positive ways that Scouting has helped change their lives. Bethel Church is fortunate to have had dedicated and faithful adult leaders within its Scouting ministry over its long history.
