TUCC Restoring The Village Scouting Program

TUCC Restoring The Village Scouting Program

The TUCC aka. The Trinity United Church of Christ works for the welfare of the underprivileged through various programs that they have to offer. They engage the members of all the ages from small kids to the adults and the elderly in multiple programs that can help the people in need in some way or the other. They have various ministries that handle all these programs.

One such program that the Trinity United Church of Christ organizes is the boy scouts. The boy scouts are the activity in which the young boys aged 6 to 17 is encouraged to explore the wonders of the world through scouting.

These kids are trained to build and survive through the harsh woods with the help of night camps. They are taught various skills and ethics to make them into better persons. They are taken on multiple expeditions that help the people who are desperately in need. Anyone can join the boy’s scouts at the Trinity United Church for Christ and can experience all this. There are trained leaders to help the children go through this process. The leaders need to complete their training and have a certificate before leading any Boy Scout group.

These volunteers then help the people in the villages to build new buildings or restore the broken ones.

The Restoring The Village Program

Restoring the village program is organized by the Trinity United Church of Christ where the volunteers visit the villages and help the people rebuild broken buildings, roads and other places that have been damaged. The people in the poor villages do not have enough funding to pay for the restoration of the most important buildings like their houses, toilets, roads, etc.

The volunteers from the Trinity Church of Christ send their volunteers that are experienced in restoration and want to provide a hand in helping these people to the villages. These volunteers then help the people in the villages to build new buildings or restore the broken ones. This cuts the labor charges for the villagers, and they can easily afford to live in better conditions due to this initiative.

Restoring the village scouting program involves the boy scouts.

Restoring the village scouting program involves the boy scouts. The boy scouts under the guidance of experienced volunteers are sent to the villages by the Trinity United Church of Christ, and they help the villagers restore their damaged structures. The restoring the village scouting program involves all the members of the boy’s scouts from the age 6 to 17.

However, the once that are chosen to go to the site are only the teens. Random volunteers that have the certificate of leadership visit the villages with these kids to teach them how to work. This program is a great way to teach the children some core values like compassion and kindness. The quality to help others is being put in these children at a very small age, and this will become a habit as they grow older.

The Restoring The Village Scouting Program Training Session

The Trinity United Church of Christ is organizing the training session for the restoring the village scouting program to teach the boy scouts about the basics of working in a village. All the volunteers are invited to participate in this initiative. The training session is scheduled for the November 7th, 2017 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. Rev. Michael D. Jacobs is handling the program.

This is a great initiative that has been taken up by the Trinity United Church for Christ to teach the children proper values from the childhood and also to help the poor villagers with their needs. More information is available on the website of the church.

Rev. Dr. Otis Moss- Messages

Some of the most famous quotes by Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III are as follows:

  1. Not voting is one of the worst things that could happen in our community. You can vote for whoever you want to, but choose not to vote spits in the face of our ancestors who fought for our right to vote.
  2. Ever since the civil rights movement, the black church has always encouraged the people to utilize their voting rights, which is a right that was fought for.
  3. Being outraged about two men or two women, it requires absolutely no work on the ground. So you can be outraged, and you can be an armchair activist, engage in nothing and just simply get on the microphone and say, “I don’t believe in X, Y, and Z and it’s terrible,” and you can call them names.
  4. I would rather fail to do God’s work than having a pseudo-victory being co-opted by someone else.
  5. We live our faith; we don’t legislate our faith.
  6. There’s some homophobia within the black community, but there’s some strong homophobia throughout the whole of American society as well, particularly throughout the South to a degree, whether white or black. And since many of us migrated from the South, that could be a strong connection along those lines.

Rev. Dr. Otis Moss III has written many books that you can read for more wisdom from him. Additionally, he also addresses the people in the Trinity United Church for Christ Chicago, and you can visit his prayer services to listen to him live and experience his wisdom and learn from him.
