Abuse in any form, but particularly against children in the care of trusted organizations, is a serious matter that affects people throughout their lives. Earlier this year, the Boy Scouts of America (“BSA”) filed for bankruptcy to protect itself against a growing number of sexual abuse claims. The deadline for claims against the BSA is November 16, 2020. Pastors, if your church has a history of, or is currently sponsoring a Boy Scout troop, Cub Scout pack or Venturing Crew please check your email for more detailed information from Bishop Palmer and Bill Brownson. Questions should be directed to: boyscouts [at] wocumc.org.
