The goal of this Edge Night is to help the middle school youth understand how the Bible was put together and that the Word of God is as living and active today as it was in the days of the biblical writers over 2,000 years ago who were inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Edge Night at a Glance
How the Bible came to be the Bible we read today is quite a story. This night will help the middle school youth understand not only how the Bible was assemble, but also the writers themselves. Often we don’t take time to understand the people who God inspired or even recognize how God is inspiring us with His Word still alive in our world today. This Edge Night will bring all this and more to life and a fun and creative way.
The Edge Night will start with a game called “Battle for the Truth” where true and false statements about the Bible will be read and the middle school youth will need to go to either the side of the room to choose if the statement is True or False. Immediately following the Gather, the Core Team will present the Proclaim of the night in a skit interviewing three of the Bible authors; Isaiah, David and John. As the night progresses, small groups will be given an opportunity to be creative and draw a story from one of the books in the bible to enhance the environment for the night, the Books of the Bible. The send will invite them to write a letter to their community similar to St. Paul’s letters to Timothy and Titus, Corinth, Thessalonica, Philippi, etc., to show how the word of God still inspires and speaks to us today.
