UMC & NTC Option 2

Option 2 keeps the unit(s) (Pack, Troop, Crew) at the existing United Methodist Church facility and continues to provide general liability coverage.  The church releases all unit assets and no longer has approval of adult leadership. The unit and the church sign a Facilities Use Agreement.

To choose Option 2, a new chartered organization needs to be secured that will charter / sponsor the Scouting unit(s).  Branding changes (any logos of the church, church name on unit flags, etc. are removed and replaced with the new chartered organziation.
