Steady Shelter The Four Marks of the Church About this Edge Night The theme of the night is Foundation – looking at the Four Marks and how they form the foundation for the Catholic Church. The night will begin with the game of Four Corners, which is a great way for the middle school youth to get out some energy and also meet new people. Then the night will move from this high-energy game into upbeat music; see the Media Suggestions or feel free to use any Christian music. This will transition into the Proclaim talk, which will dive into the four marks of the Church, beginning first with Christ and ending with our role as Catholics in the Church. From that point the teens will break into small groups for discussion and activities that emphasizes the main points of the talk. The night will end with an invitation to prayer and a commitment to put our lives on the foundation of the Church. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to allow the middle school youth to grow in their knowledge of the unique characteristics of the Catholic Church, which are called the four marks of the Church. We profess our belief in the four marks every time we profess the Creed, “We believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.” These defining characteristics form a foundation for the Catholic Church.
