North Chapel Hill Baptist Church

Chartered Organizations (from the BSA Website)

Community-based organizations receive national charters to use the Scouting program as a part of their own youth work. These groups, which have goals compatible with those of the Boy Scouts of America, include religious, educational, civic, fraternal, business, and labor organizations; governmental bodies; corporations; professional associations; and citizens' groups.

Troop 59 & North Chapel Hill Baptist Church

The Chartered Organization for Troop 59 is North Chapel Hill Baptist Church, which generously provides meeting space and other support. The church is located at 7707 Airport Road (just south of I-40, across the street from the Chapel Hill North shopping center). Boys do not have to be affiliated with North Chapel Hill Baptist Church in order to join Troop 59.

Religious faith is an important part of Scouting, as is evident from the mission statement below. However, no particular religion is specified and boys from all religions are welcome. Boy Scouts who wish to explore their faith further with their family's own religious leader can earn a religious emblem for their efforts.
