NEW: An Edge Digital Check-In

In our loneliness, in our frustration, in our boredom, in our restlessness… God is with us.

These past few months have taken a toll on all of us, and on our middle school youth. This summer, do not miss the chance to continue to connect, or reconnect, with your middle school youth to bring them the hope and peace that comes through the truth that God is with us even in these most uncertain times.

God With Us is our first-ever Edge Digital Check-In and it has been created to help you guide your middle school youth to recognize the presence of God with them in all the situations, emotions, and circumstances they are currently experiencing. While you are facing many challenging new realities, running your Edge program will not be one of them. This series consists of six mini Edge Nights that can easily be done on a digital platform or in any hybrid ministry situation. The game and prayer elements are simple and the teachings are easily implemented and adaptable for the unique situations your middle school youth are in.

God is truly with us. Let us not lose hope or sight of the mission that we all have to share the truth of God’s love with our middle school youth because when they encounter Christ it changes everything.
