Goal of this Edge Night
The goal for this Edge Night is to create a fun and welcoming environment to foster relational ministry and community in your ministry.
Edge Night at a Glance
This is a fun night for team competition. This social is all about working together as a team, cheering each other on, and hopefully winning some great prizes. As a part of your Edge ministry, we recommend that you add social nights to help the Core Team and the youth to get to know each other and have some fun. Really enjoy the night and work together as a team. All Core Members are strongly encouraged to enter into the games and be relational with the youth.
As the youth enter the room, make sure that the Core Team is welcoming them in to the Edge Night. The night will begin with a general welcoming and recognition of birthdays and then an explanation of the night. While the youth are sitting in small group, they will each be given a piece of blank paper and markers and create a sign with their group’s name on it (which they choose) – similar to what you see runners wear in a marathon. Use a safety pin or two and have the youth attach the team name to the front of their shirts. Once the flow of the evening is explained, the youth will be dismissed to begin their relay races. Finish the night with a prayer.
