We partner with local churches to bring unity through a community youth group called COYO. COYO is for kids 6th - 12th grade. They meet each week from 6pm - 7:30pm. The location changes quarterly between the different area churches. This spring the are meeting at the First Christian Church in Arcola.
-We encourage all students to show up as they are and be REAL with themselves, with others, and with God.
-We strive to be relevant and connect with the matter at hand. Through talks, conversations, studies, and service we do our best to connect with students right where they're at in life.
-We encourage relationships! We pray that every student who comes through the door can connect with other students, adult leaders and most importantly, come to know God through a personal relationship with him.
COYO also offers plenty of exciting events to attend, conferences, concerts, service projects, and offers a great venue to just hangout.
