CCYM youth and adults met July 12-14 for the Louisiana Youth Ministry Organization (LYMO) annual planning retreat held at First United Methodist Church in Alexandria. The group discussed plans for Conference youth ministry events and retreats for the upcoming year. 

New officers were elected and the 2015-16 theme was chosen. The theme is  "Rooted in Christ," based on Matthew 12:33.  "Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree isrecognized by its fruit."
