We take this opportunity to remind you that all chartering and facility use agreements are paused because it is creating disruption to scouts, ministry, and the work of mediation. There is a team of people working on the relationship agreements with scouting that will better assist congregations and potential liability that can be used in the future. Any work on chartering now is creating disruption that is not assisting everyone in moving forward.
If you or congregational leadership is approached by a Boy Scouts of America (BSA) Council representative about re-chartering, indicate that the BSA and UMC have an agreement to pause all chartering until after the bankruptcy is resolved.
Please direct any questions you may have to email@example.com.
Bishop Leonard E. Fairley
