Fifty-one youngsters received PRAY awards on Scout Sunday at Mandarin UMC
JACKSONVILLE, Fla.--On Scout Sunday, Mandarin UMC presented 51 young people with PRAY (Programs of Religious Activities with Youth) awards.
The church also sponsors a 100-member Cub Scout pack, a 25-member Boy Scout troop along with Daisy, Brownie, and Girl Scout troops.
In 2014, Mandarin UM Men gave a remarkable $32,000 to a variety of local charities and ministries, many of which the men actively serve in as well. Funds are primarily raised through a golf tournament and a 38-year tradition of selling Christmas trees to the community. Once a month, the men host a brown-bag breakfast that includes devotions, speakers and prayer. Every Wednesday morning the men host a Bible study and a prayer group. Wednesday evenings, they study a range of challenges facing men.
