EDGE (6th – 8th Grade)
EDGE is a program geared specifically for 6th – 8th graders — those who are on the “EDGE” of adolescence. It is a spin-off of the popular Life Teen High School program.
EDGE Nights are Sundays from 6:00-7:30 p.m. during the school year
EDGE bible study meets every Wednesday of the school year from 6:30-7:45 p.m.
EDGE Registration for 2017-2018 is not yet open!
EDGE nights, which are what the sessions are called, don’t follow a typical religious education classroom style. Instead, they are run by a Core Team, who not only facilitate the small group break-out sessions but also present the EDGE night material in skits, games, and talks. Consequently, EDGErs (the 6-8th graders who attend) experience an evening filled with hands-on activities, both in large and small group settings, while they also get to know other Catholic teens in a friendly, spiritual environment!
What’s up for Summer 2017?
6th, 7th & 8th Grade Summer Service Camp
July 20-22, 2017 at the Newman Center
WHO: Students from any parish are welcome including rising 6th graders.
WHAT: We will have 3 days of service projects to our community with evening programming that will include music, games, prayer and of course–great food! Service will benefit The Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House, Loaves & Fishes, The Bluffs and our local parishes and we are still adding sites! Service will be a mix of “face to face” projects where we will meet our beneficiaries and “behind the scenes” or anonymous projects.
WHEN: Drop-off will be Thursday morning, July 20th at 8 a.m. and we’ll finish up with 5 p.m. Mass & a family potluck on Saturday, July 22nd
WHERE: Sleeping quarters will be in Newman Center classrooms and we also have shower facilities here. Meals and evening programming will be in the Newman Center MPR. Service projects will be around Columbia and parents and EDGE Core members who are fully VIRTUS compliant will serve as chaperones and drivers.
COST: $75 per student which includes all meals and supplies for the event. We will ask for donations to make freezer meals for the Ronald McDonald house. Scholarships are available and payments are not due until July. We are not currently accepting payments so that all transactions for this event will occur in the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2017.
