Life Night Outline

Goal of this Night

The goal of this night is to help the teens understand how the Bible came together. They will recognize that God used human authors to write down Scripture and see how reading and praying Scripture should be an important part of their every day lives.

About this night

This Life Night begins with a friendly competition of guessing specific characters in the Bible. After, the night will move into a teaching that helps the teens understand how the Bible came together. The Break will give the teens an opportunity to discuss the importance of Scripture in their every day lives. The night will close with a time of prayer, giving the teens a chance to write their own psalm.

Parental Notice

This week during our Life Night we discussed how the Bible was put together. We looked at how God is the author of Scared Scripture and the role human authors played in writing the Scriptures. We also discussed the important role Scared Scripture plays within the life of the Church. This week, take some time to read Sacred Scripture with your family. Start by reading and reflecting on the upcoming readings for Mass. Use the following questions as a guide to your discussion on the Mass readings:

  • What do you think the readings are about this week?
  • What are some key words that stood out to you
  • How do those words relate to your life?
  • How can we take the Gospel message and live that daily as a family?


The environment for this night is all about writing. Set up different stations around the room with tools that can be used for writing. Have laptops and computers set up on a table. Have notepads and pens set out on another table. Set up a whiteboard or chalkboard with markers or chalk for writing. If possible, have old typewriters and paper as well. In the front of the room set up a table that displays a Bible. As the teens are entering the room, have the Core Members busy writing at one of the stations and invite the teens to help them write a story.
