Goal for the Life Night:
This night is about our response to God’s free gift of Himself. Just as Jesus fully gave Himself to us, we are called to give completely of ourselves to God using the faith given to us in Baptism. This night will provide teens with the definition of faith and the role the Church plays in our faith.
Life Night at a Glance:
This night focuses on the free gift of faith given to us in the waters of Baptism and the call to live out our faith with the Church as our guide. The night is set up as a whitewater river scene. The teens will compete in teams to build rafts out of materials they are given in a box. This competition sets up the teaching on faith as the river we travel to Christ with the Church as our guide on the river. A video featuring teens who have chosen to live out their faith and respond to Christ will be shown after the teaching and before small groups. The video will help lead into a small group discussion about where the teens stand in their own faith. The night will end with the renewal of Baptismal vows and each teen will receive a bottle of holy water.
