The goal of this Edge Night is to help the middle school youth understand how we are saved and the role of grace in their lives.
This Edge Night seeks to help the middle school youth understand our salvation and the role grace plays in our life. Grace is a free, undeserved gift of God’s love to us. Salvation and grace are not something we can earn. We receive salvation through the passion, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. It is in Baptism that we take part in this saving mystery of our faith. We receive the sanctifying grace that reestablishes our righteousness before God. God’s grace fills our lives so that we can live a life that mirrors His great love.
This Edge Night begins with a classic game of “Bigger or Better.” In small groups the youth will trade a simple seed for another object that is bigger or better than the previous one. After a teaching on salvation and the gift of grace God gives us freely because of his love for us, the youth will discuss the role of grace in their lives and work together to write a prayer of thanksgiving to God. The Edge Night will close with the youth praying one decade of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.
