EDGE Teen Helpers (for teens in grades 9-12)

Monday Night Middle School Program

We are in need of high school students to help our Core Team lead small groups for our EDGE Nights. EDGE takes place on Monday nights, and you can choose to help from either 5:00-6:15pm or 6:45-8:00pm. At EDGE, you will be placed in a small group of middle schoolers, who are all the same gender and in the same grade. With this small group, you will have the opportunity to share your faith and the ways God has worked in your life! (Plus middle schoolers love to hear all your advice on middle school and really look up to you!) For more information on EDGE Nights and a calendar for the year, please visit stmaryhuntley.org/edgenights
