The goal for this session is to give the middle school youth an opportunity to grow in community and welcome all the sixth grade youth to the Edge family.
Social Nights are a great way to engage the middle school youth. These nights not only break up the catechesis during the semester, but they give the Core an opportunity to practice relational ministry. Social nights also give each of the youth an opportunity to get to know others in their community. They are able to build relationships and friendships with each other.
Social Nights are meant to be fun and light-hearted. Keep everything more simple than normal and really focus on getting to know the youth—especially the youth who are more reserved or new.
