The middle school youth will identify the covenants in the Old Testament that God made with His people (Noah, Abraham, Moses and David) and what it means to be a part of His family.
Edge Night at a Glance
God did not simply create the world and then step back and watch. Instead, God wants to be in relationship with His people. When God established relationships in the Old Testament, He did it by making a covenant with His people. A covenant is not just a promise or a contract that can be easily broken; God’s covenants are eternal. With each covenant in the Old Testament, God promises to be our faithful and loving Father. In return we are called to be faithful and obedient to Him. The covenants of the Old Testament are God’s design to make us a part of His family.
Tonight, the youth will at first be bombarded with Core Team asking them to make promises or making promises to them as a sign of how often we might ask someone, “Do you promise?” The night will open with campaign speeches from phony candidates making promises they cannot keep. Ultimately, the youth will examine how much they trust God.
