Mount Lebanon United Methodist Church is proud to charter both Boy Scout Troop 23 and Cub Scout Pack 870!

Troop 23 & Pack 870Boy Scouts

Troop 23 is part of the Boy Scouts of America. We belong to the Laurel Highlands Council and are within the Eagle Valley District. In June 2014, Conestoga District merged with Steel City District. The new district incorporates communities in southern part of Allegheny County. The former Conestoga District includes parts of the city of Pittsburgh (Beechview, Brookline), Bethel Park, Castle Shannon, Dormont, Mt. Lebanon and Upper St. Clair. Steel City District included the city of Pittsburgh neighborhoods Carrick, Knoxville and South Side and Baldwin Township, Jefferson Hills, Mt. Oliver, Munhall, Pleasant Hills, South Park, West Mifflin, and Whitehall.

Boy Scouts are boys in 6th through 12th grades who are under the age of 18 years. The Dormont United Methodist Church became the Charter Organization for Troop 23 in 1925. In April 2014, DUMC closed its doors but the charter was transferred to nearby Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church. In June, 2014, the troop moved to Mt. Lebanon United Methodist Church, our new charter organization. At the present time, Troop 23 has 33 registered Scouts in three patrols and 16 registered adult leaders as well as numerous parents who are actively involved helping not only their son but also other scouts.

Troop 23 meets weekly on Tuesday evenings at 7PM in Wesley Hall at the church.
