What does an EDGE Night look like?

Each month in broken into 4 parts: 2 Catechetical Nights, 1 Social Night, and 1 Issue Night. Each night begins with an introduction, creative games relating to the topic, teachings or videos or skits about the topic, and a prayerful send off. Issue nights are about a common topic kids are struggling with in today’s society. And of course, social nights are extra social!
