Beyond the sign bearing the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender colors, the Country Club Congregational United Church of Christ welcomes all Boy Scouts, as they hold hands in prayer.

They are praying that scouting would be an organization open to all people, and that anyone who wish, might experience the organization's lessons.

"Our local church, Country Club Congregational United Church of Christ, as well as our denomination, the United Church of Christ, are fully inclusive of all people," Rev. Chase Peeples said.

The day was named National Boy Scout Sunday for a national call for action.
