WHO ARE WE?

TAG, YOU’RE IT!
Simply put,
T.A.G. is Aledo UMC’s efforts to help each & every young person (every TEENS AMONG GOD) to grow personally & spiritually...to ignite a deepened fire for our Lord Jesus and His saving grace! It’s about training our young people to lead the cause of Christ, and apply Christianity to every area of their lives!      

TEENS AMONG GOD  is more than programs and events. 

T.A.G. is every effort by the Christian community to reach out to the youth with the love of God as revealed to us in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit and His sacrifice on Calvary.

T.A.G. is a program that helps young people reach their full God created potential, promotes both healthy development and faith in adolescents.

T.A.G. works to foster the total personal and spiritual growth of each young person and seeks to draw young people into responsible participation in the life, mission and work of the faith community.

T.A.G. is the reaching out to young people to embrace their gifts and to walk with them in their process of becoming all they can be.
