New Scout Lodge at PTC UMC!

The entire community is invited to celebrate the opening of the new Scout Lodge at the Peachtree City United Methodist Church on August 10th at 12:45. There will be a time of recognition during the 9:30 and 11:00 AM worship services that morning, and then the service of consecration will begin at 12:45 at the Lodge itself, located in the lower parking lot to the right of the worship center located at 225 Robinson Rd. The Peachtree City United Methodist Church is host to three Scout Troops, two Cub Scouts Packs and twenty Girl Scout troops for a total of over 550 scouts and 350 volunteers.

The construction of the Lodge began with a groundbreaking in September 2005 and was built primarily by volunteers from the scouting and church community. Fundraising such as participation in the Air Show, the UMM Chicken Q, a program called Trailblazing for Tomorrow, a Silent Auction, and very generous donations from the local business community brought the project to completion in early August of this year. Approximately $300,000 was raised and about $300,000 in professional labor and material donations were received; the church contributed $73,000 in funding and land, in addition to untold labor and prayer support. We hope the community will join us for a time of dedication and an open house and tour of the facility.
