Happy Birthday Church An Edge Night on Pentecost About this Edge Night The night begins as a birthday celebration for all of the youth. They will enter into a space decorated as a birthday party and be given a “gift.” Then there will be a game of “Guess That Language.” This will lead into the Proclaim about how the Holy Spirit gave the disciples the ability to speak many different languages to preach the Gospel. This teaching will help the youth to see that they are called to preach the Gospel and that no matter what the circumstance (language barriers, fears, etc.) the Holy Spirit can be called on to help them share the love of Christ anywhere. They should understand that the Church began through the gift of the Holy Spirit, and thus must continue to grow through that same gift. Goal of This Night The goal of this night is to gain an understanding of the Holy Spirit. The youth will learn how Jesus prepared the disciples for the gift of the Spirit and further how the Holy Spirit gave birth to the Church at Pentecost. This night should encourage the youth to call on the Holy Spirit to lead them as disciples of Christ, and remind them that they are part of the Church and called to share the message of Christ.
