Your search for the right youth group for your teen stops here
Bible Study and Fellowship are the core focus of our youth group. We study together each time we meet and have lots of fun fellowship to strenghten the bonds formed during their teenage years.
What we do:
* Sunday night small group (2715 Kenwood St) @ 5pm
Wednesday night youth group @ 7pm
Disc golf, dodgeball, football, basketball, Game nights, movie nights, lock ins, campouts, local trips
CCYG hosts an "alternative prom" event each year on the smae night as the Ottumwa HS prom. Our goal is to provide a prom type atmosphere to those teens not able to go to their regular prom and an opportunity for all of our youth group to get that experience. A nice dinner is served and we fellowship with games and other activities throughout the night.
