Be an active participant in our sponsored and affiliated organization

The Buddhist Church of Sacramento is a vibrant community which offers many ways to engage in various activities we offer.  Our sponsored organizations support and nurture the teachings of Jodo Shinshu in ways that tie our adult and youth community socially and/or philanthropically.  Our affiliated organizations are part of the community but not directly associated to the religious aspects of our temple.  We support our affiliated organizations by offering a place to meet and to extend programs to our Sangha members interested in scouting and Japanese language school.

Overview

Scouting

Buddhist Church of Sacramento offers a place for our scouting programs to meet and conduct various troop activities including formal scouting programs such as Boy Scout Court of Honor, Girl Scout Bridging, and Cub Scout Arrow of Light. Our scouting program is not associated with religious aspects of our temple and we welcome all school age children interested in being part of a large community of scouts. Our scouting program is successful thanks to many parents who volunteer their time and skills to serve as adult leaders.
