With The Eyes of Christ

An Edge Issue Night on Self Image

Edge Night Outline

Goal of this Night

The goal of this Edge night is to lead the middle school youth closer to Christ by showing them how Christ sees them. They will learn that they are created in the image and likeness of God and that they are all unique.

About this night

This Edge Night will begin with a skit about self-image and then move into a talk about the importance of seeing ourselves through the eyes of Christ. The youth will have an opportunity to think of different ways that they define themselves and start to process ways to see themselves as perfect creations of God. They will also be given Bible verses to look up about positive self-image. The Edge Night will end with praying the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Before The Night

Meet with your Core Team to plan out the Edge Night in a way that will work best for your parish and youth. Divide up tasks for the night, create the posters for the environment, and gather all of the needed supplies. Make sure to have enough bibles for the small groups during the break activity.


See the Skit on page 44. On poster board or large pieces of paper, write all of the negative thoughts on one side and all the positive thoughts with the Bible verses on the other side. Put these posters up at the front of the room where everyone can see them. Hang them in a way that they will be easy to flip over, either with tape that will not rip the paper or with string from the ceiling make sure that the negative phrases are facing out first.

Put up mirrors on the wall with the poster boards. Also put a large crucifix or painting of Christ in a central point in the front of the room.
