The Christ Church Child/Youth Protection Policy is available here.

The T.A.G. youth group was formed to provide fellowship, activities, and spiritual guidance for our youth in the NewRinggold Charge and the surrounding area.  The group meets bi-weekly on Friday Nights from 7 PM to 10 PM with the following

  • Fun and Games,

  • Fellowship and Activities, and

  • Lessons that provide a modern perspective for your own life with a Biblical connection to help you grow in your faith.

Information updates are available from several resources.

  • Facebook - we have a Facebook group T.A.G where you can join and receive invitations and updates to all upcoming events.  This is the easiest and most convenient way for you to keep up to date since all new information is sent directly to your email address.

  • This Web page - The same information on Facebook and the Forums will also be posted on this website.  However, you will not receive emails when new information is posted.
