Cub Scout Visit 2018

ML+ TELLS THE HISTORY

CUB SCOUT TROOP VISITS CHRIST CHURCH

In May Den 8, out of Pack 124, visited the church. There were 7 Scouts, 2 siblings, 5 parents and Den Leader, Heather Thomas in attendance. Reverend Mitchell gave the tour of both the church and the graveyard. The Scouts were also treated to a portrayal of Benjamin Lippincott who is interred in the graveyard, Lippincott, who was a California Pioneer in the 19th century was portrayed by Bob Honecker. They were  very intrigued by Benjamin Lippincott as a cowboy – at the end one asked “for real – are you risen from the dead or someone else just pretending?”

The Scouts really enjoyed the tour — and especially thought the Vinegar Bible was “very old and very cool – especially since it was 1 of 40!”
