Aaronic Priesthood and Scouting
“Aaronic Priesthood and Scouting,” Aaronic Priesthood: Fulfilling Our Duty to God [Deacon], 10
Scouting is full of adventure, challenge, and responsibility. We encourage you to participate in Scouting. Many of the Scouting requirements can fill goals and requirements of the Duty to God certificates.
As a Scout, you are encouraged to:
• Learn and live the Scout Oath, Law, Motto, and Slogan.
• Achieve rank advancements.
• Earn merit badges.
• Earn the Eagle Scout Award.
Both the gospel and Scouting teach us to be prepared in “every needful thing” (D&C 88:119). As you participate in Duty to God and Scouting, you’ll develop character, learn valuable skills, and become a better member of your family and community.
You are also encouraged to earn the Scouting On My Honor Award. You can do this by completing the requirements for the Duty to God certificate for deacons and achieving the Scout rank of Star in the United States (or equivalent Scouting award in other countries).^ Back to top
