History of Scouting at Stout Memorial United Methodist Church
On April 30, 1951, the Methodist Men’s Group of Phelps Methodist Episcopal Church, South received certification as the Chartering Organization for Boy Scouts of America Troop 12. In those fifty years of service to the community of Parkersburg, over 500 young boys took part in the ministry of scouting along with nearly 100 adult leaders. Over 70 young men have received their Eagle Scout Award. Stout Memorial United Methodist Church, successors to Phelps Chapel, has proudly supported Troop 12 for over 58 years. The United Methodist Men’s Group of Stout Memorial United Methodist Church continue to strongly support the troop. Troop 12 is strategically positioned to provide the scouting experience for the 21st Century for hundreds more young men. Come and join along.
