The middle school youth will grow in community and get to know other youth in the group. Socials are typically a good way to gain interest from new youth, breakdown cliques and/or gain momentum to start a new semester or youth ministry year.
Edge Night at a Glance
This edge night is a fun night for competition, dancing, and eating – three things most middle school youth love (well, maybe not the dancing part). Allow the youth to have a great time to mix, meet the core team, play some games, and spend time in prayer. All Core Members are strongly encouraged to enter into the games and be relational with the youth.
The edge night is divided into three sections – the first and the second part are interchangeable, but keep the third part as a way to gather the youth
and share with them briefly. Part One involves food – feed the youth some hot dogs and/or hamburgers and have some creative ways for the youth to mix and mingle. during the second portion, it’s times for games, dancing, and fun. The third portion of the night will involve a brief sharing and a prayer experience for the youth.
