The UCC, in partnership with Scouts BSA, participates in the Programs of Religious Activities with Youth (P.R.A.Y.).  Fischer and Hayes’ work in their confirmation class met the requirements for the God and Church emblem.      According to the P.R.A.Y booklet, the P.R.A.Y. award features a four-colored cross.  The four colors converge into a point to create an “X” at the center of the cross.  “X” is the first letter in the Greek word for Christ, and it is symbolic of how Christ should be at the center of our lives.  The four colors correspond to the four levels in P.R.A.Y. for different age groups. The God and Church emblem has a blue-ribbon symbolizing loyalty and truth.  Pastor Scott presented the religious emblem on Dec. 10 and pinned the award on their Scout uniforms.

Congratulations to Fischer and Hayes!
