Cub Scout Pack 158 is part of the Capital Area Council housed in Austin, Texas and is part of the Boy Scouts of America program. Boys are invited to join the Cub Scout program who are in 1st-5th grade (graduated kindergarten) or 7-10 years of age. Programming for Cub Scouts is centered on fun, development learning around Citizenship, Physical Fitness, Care in the Outdoors, and always “Doing your best” in whatever activity to just name a few themes. The family is the center of the program and you will often see 1 or more parents helping with the den meeting or being involved with the youth member throughout. As a Pack (meaning multiple age dens), we meet once a month. As dens, meaning age group specific small groups, we meet once a week except on Pack Meeting weeks. We invite anyone to stop by and visit our pack and learn more about the Cub Scout program. Meeting dates and times are on the church calendar. <a href="">See our website</a> for contact information.</span></font><br>
Easy Line Dancing 1:00 PM Weekly, Wednesdays <div><span style="font-size: 13px;">Our beginner line dance class welcomes everyone that wants to move and have fun.  It is exercise that does not seem like exercise.  If you are counting steps, one song can be as many as 100 steps and it is done in an air-conditioned room.  This is not a serious competitive class, we laugh and talk and get to know each other over an hour of fun.  Everyone is welcome no matter what your skill level may be.  We meet in the Sanctuary every Wednesday at 1:00 pm and it is a free class.  Our teacher, Parthenia Keys loves to dance and encourages everyone to give it a try!</span><br></div><div><span style="font-size: 13px;"><br></span></div><div><span style="font-size: 13px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">See the </span><a style="background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-size: 13px;" href="">Line Dancing page on our website</a><span style="font-size: 13px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> for more details.</span><span style="font-size: 13px;"><br></span></div>

We completed our Bronze Award as juniors, which we earned by noting a need within the community, and taking action. That need happened to be the butterfly garden at the church! We wanted to help nurture your butterfly garden, clean up some leaves, and provide a place for Monarch butterflies to lay eggs. We planted some milkweed and other butterfly-attracting plants. We love meeting at your church and wanted a way to give back. We are always looking for service opportunities so please keep us in mind whenever you need a hand. Our leaders’ names are Dana Nathanson and Becky Jones. We meet at 6:30 pm  on the first and third Tuesdays of every month. We are always ready to make new friends and welcome more girls into our troop!<a href="">See our website</a> for contact information.</span>
