Scouting at IUCC
Irvine United Congregational Church (IUCC) is a proud supporter of inclusive scouting programs that are open, welcoming and safe for everyone. Our families participate in scouting programs offered by Girl Scouts the of USA (girls age 5-18), Cub Scouts (youth age 5-10) and ScoutsBSA (youth age 10-18) programs.
As an Open and Affirming congregation, our members participated in the Scouting Working Group which resulted in the 2015 memorandum of understanding between the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) and the United Church of Christ (UCC). Recently, our members contributed to the 2022 Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion by BSA’s Order of the Arrow.
IUCC has demonstrated its support for scouting in Irvine by serving as a charter organization for Cub Scout Pack 697 and ScoutsBSAs Troop 602 and 691. We currently host meetings of the volunteer scout leaders of the Rancho San Joaquin District of the Orange County Council, BSA.
To learn more about Troop 691 or the Rancho San Joaquin District please visit their web sites.
IUCC honors scouting programs on the second Sunday of February. We invite members to wear their uniforms and share the part that Scouting played in their life.
