DAYTON, Ind. (WLFI) - A Dayton church has officially cut ties with the Boy Scouts of America.
Executive Scout of the Sagamore Council Chris Mehaffey said he received a letter Tuesday night from Dayton United Methodist Church saying it plans to end its charter with cub pack 3316 on December 31.
However, Mehaffey expects the pack to leave sooner. He said the pack has a new charter with Dayton Memorial Presbyterian Church. The church voted unanimously to accept the pack.
News 18 originally reported last week Mehaffey was expecting the move by Dayton United Methodist after Boy Scout leaders voted last month to allow openly gay youth to serve in the organization.
Cub pack 3316 hopes to be moved into their new location in the next month.
