The Buddy System An Edge Night on Ruth About this Edge Night This Edge Night will help the youth learn the story of Ruth as a model of faith and godly friendship. It will also help them to reflect on the importance of having good fellowship and being a good friend to others. The Gather begins with a fun and fast-paced game showing that two is better than one. The Proclaim spends time sharing the story of Ruth and encouraging the young people to consider whether or not they honor God by being a good friend. The Break allows the youth a chance to take a “friendship quiz” to get them thinking about areas that they could improve as a friend, followed by a small group discussion. During the Send, the youth will be invited to participate in an affirmation activity designed to empower them to build up those around them. Finally, the night will close with them putting into practice what they learned about praying with and for their friends. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to introduce the middle school youth to the biblical character of Ruth who was one of the significant women in salvation history and ancestress of David and most importantly, Jesus. The night will focus on Ruth’s obedience to God, specifically through faithful and selfless friendship.
