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.

In the small towns and rural areas in the Ozark Mountains are people who quietly live in deplorable conditions with little hope of change. Youth groups will find this summer mission camp heartbreaking at first as they see the destitute conditions in which people live, but that work will soon become heartwarming as they see the difference they can make in someone's life. 

Reaching out to help these struggling families fix and maintain what little they have brings them a message of Christian caring and service that will open their eyes to Christ's love. Group projects during this summer mission camp will be a mixture of roofing, painting, wheelchair ramp construction, and general clean-up and repair. 

Lodging: Groups will stay at a lodging facility with bunk style housing with a/c, dining hall, basketball and a swimming pool. All meals are provided except for two lunches and two dinners during free time.

 

July 12-14 Summer Youth Camp at the Boy Scout Camp Details - TBD
