The Proclaim focuses on Jesus’ descent into hell, His Resurrection, and His Ascension into heaven. The Break gives the youth an opportunity to make cookies to enjoy while they discuss the teaching. The Send ends the Edge Night with a time for praise and worship. Goal of This Night The goal of this Edge Night is to help the youth understand Jesus Christ’s triumph through His Resurrection and Ascension and how these two events changed the course of human history and our lives.
