OBY – our Youth Group for high school-aged teens.
You really need to experience it!
OBY meets at the Unite service on Sunday evenings and have Bible Study every Monday evening. They go on camps, hang out and arrange social activities.

Given this big section to write whatever they wanted, OBY only wrote those two sentences, which we assume is because they were in a hurry to hang out, go on camps, arrange social activities and chill at the Unite Service.  So if you like to hang out, go on camps, arrange social activities and attend the Unite service, you should totally check it out!
