Rise Up The Ascension About this Edge Night This night will have a theme: “rising up.” The Gather will encourage teamwork as groups compete to see how high they can construct a tower out of uncooked spaghetti noodles and marshmallows. After the Gather, the Proclaim will dive into the teaching on the Ascension and focus on how Jesus prepared His apostles to “rise up” and spread His mission. During the Break, small groups will have time to discuss the main point from the Proclaim and begin to see how the Ascension applies to the lives of the middle school youth. The small groups will also have time for an individual reflection as well as creating a skit on one event of the Ascension. The night will conclude with a meditation and prayer that will encourage the middle school youth to “rise up” as disciples of Christ. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to help the middle school youth understand the Ascension and how each of them is called to carry out Jesus’ mission on earth.
