Welcome to Troop 928

Monthly Outings: Troop 928 has a year-round outings program, with an overnight outing every month planned by the Scouts themselves. In addition, the Troop or any of the patrols may plan day hikes or other activities during the year. See the list of outings and dates in our troop calendar. The Troop outings program is designed to provide the Scouts with fun, new skills, and advancement. In addition to meeting requirements for advancing in rank, outings provide opportunities for earning merit badges, including Camping, Hiking, Cooking, Backpacking, Orienteering, Wilderness Survival, and many others.

Braille Bible Service Project

Posted on Jan 21 2017 - 11:18am

On Saturday, January 28th  from 9-11 a.m.  We will be printing and assembling Braille Bibles at Messiah Lutheran Church.  Location: 1325 South Main Street, Keller, TX 76248.   (It looks like a house from the 1950s, next to the dance studio on the east side of Hwy  377.)

 Please wear your Activity uniform (i.e. your Troop 928 Red Shirt).

The project only has room for 10 scouts. Sign up on the troop website to reserve your spot.  As a team we will work together to print and assemble the Bibles.   This is a great way to give back, have fun, as well as earn a couple of service hours.   

The picture below is of the metal printing plates which are used to print the Bible pages.

If you have any questions, please contact Jeannie Hubert at
