Coupland Post OfficeThe CCO meets the last Monday of every month, except during the summer months of June, July and August, at St. Peter’s Church of Coupland. In addition to monthly meetings, the CCO hosts block parties, clean-up days and similar events for members of the community.

Another active group in the Coupland area that works with CCO is the Blackland Prairie Concerned Citizens Association, a rural neighborhood association organized in 2000 to guide the change from farming communities to suburban rural living.

A focal point of the community is St. Peter’s Church of Coupland, 108 Wathen. The CCO meets at the church, which also has dinners frequently throughout the year to keep the community closely connected. John Sumner is pastor.
