Our Start

In 1992, Christ's Church formed Cub Scout Pack 101. As the pack's Webelos graduated, they needed a troop to continue on in scouting. In light of this need, Mr. Roger O’Connor and Mr. Robby Beauchamp approached the Charter Representative for the pack, Mr. Gary Brown, about the church sponsoring a Troop. Through the efforts of Mr. O’Connor, Mr. Beauchamp, Mr. Brown, and the lead Pastor of Christ’s Church, Mr. Dennis Bratton (now retired), Troop 101 was formed in 1998. In 2016, the Charter Organization changed to Mandarin Lutheran Church.
