The LYO is the youth group at C&T, consisting of students in confirmation class and beyond. We meet regularly throughout the year and participate in many youth trips and service projects. Favorite activities include a trip to Young Christians’ Weekend in Branson, participating in the Festival of Sharing, ice skating at Crown Center, lock-ins and an Easter weekend prayer vigil, and community service projects. We help with Meals on Wheels, CACTUS, Community Cafe, and we “adopt” families at Christmas. Every three years we participate in the ELCA Youth Gathering, as well as relief efforts such as post hurricane Katrina and the Joplin tornado.
