Our Mission & Vision Print

Mission Statement of Troop 889

  • To provide young men the program of Boy Scouts of America.
  • To support our chartering organization, our Boy Scouts, our Troop, our District and our Council.
  • To be a credit to Boy Scouts of America, our chartering organization and our community.

Our Troop will be an active supporter of Christ Church United Methodist. We will support activities supported by the Church. We will be present in uniform on Scout Sunday. We will perform Good Turns as needed by our charter organization.

Our Troop will support the development of the individual boys through our Boy Scout program.

Our Adult and Boy Scout Leaders will support the Troop by quality leadership and planning, as well as keeping finances in order. Adult and Boy Scout Leaders will continue to obtain further training for the advancement of our Scouting program.

Our Troop will support the Tall Timbers District and be present at District activities, such as Webelos Woods in the fall and the Spring Camporee.

Our Troop will support the Sam Houston Area Council in its activities and will be present at the Scout Fair, Division Jamboree and will use and camp at their extended camping facilities when possible. Individuals from our Troop also voluntarily support the Council's Campership program by purchasing shoulder patches each year. Funds from the sale of these patches go directly toward camping fees for Scouts that would otherwise be unable to attend a council summer camp. Parents should be aware that this is a different patch from the Friends of Scouting patch.

Vision Statement of Troop 889

Troop 889 envisions a quality program which provides to our Boy Scouts:

  1. Growth in Moral Strength & Character
    • Ethics in Action
    • A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean and Reverent
    The ideals of Boy Scouting are spelled out in the Scout Oath, the Scout Law, the Scout motto, and the Scout slogan. The Boy Scout measures himself against these ideals and continually tries to improve. The goals are high, and as he reaches for them, he has some control over what and who he becomes.

  2. Develop Citizenship
    • Set the Example
    • Live the Example
    Used broadly, citizenship means the boy's relationship to others. He comes to learn of his obligations to other people, to the society in which he lives, and to the government that presides over that society.

  3. Develop Fitness
    • Physical
    • Mental
    • Emotional
    Fitness includes the body (well tuned and healthy), the mind (able to think and solve problems), and the emotions (self-control, courage, and self-respect).
