EDGE is the High School Ministry at Lutheran Church of the Resurrection in Marion, Iowa.
We exist to Equip the next generation of Disciples to Grow in their faith through worship, large group teaching, and small group discussion, as well as to Evangelize through their words and actions.
COMMUNITY CHALLENGES US TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS AND EMPOWERS OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. IT OPENS OUR EYES TO THE NEEDS OF OTHERS, AND ALLOWS US TO ASK FOR HELP WHEN WE NEED IT. IT PROVIDES A PLACE FOR HONEST, GENUINE CONVERSATION, OFFERS OPPORTUNITY FOR CONFESSION AND HEALING, AND SURROUNDS US WITH BROKEN PEOPLE STRIVING TO WALK WITH A PERFECT GOD.
ONCE WE HAVE COMMUNITY AROUND US, WE BEGIN TO WALK TOGETHER THROUGH LIFE. WE STUDY THE SCRIPTURES AND EXPLORE WHAT JESUS REALLY ASKS OF OUR LIVES. WE QUESTION AND WE CHALLENGE, WE LEARN AND WE GROW.
WHEN WE SEE OUR IMPERFECTION UP AGAINST A PERFECT GOD, ONLY THEN CAN WE FULLY UNDERSTAND THE COST OF JESUS ON THE CROSS. THAT LOVE BRINGS US TO OUR KNEES IN WORSHIP. IT'S AN OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO EXPRESS OUR ADORATION AND THANKFULNESS TO A GOD WHO PAID THE GREATEST PRICE TO CALL US SONS AND DAUGHTERS.
THE LOVE OF GOD SHOULD PROPEL US INTO ACTION. BOB GOFF SAID IT BEST: "LOVE GOD, LOVE PEOPLE, DO STUFF."
WHEN WE HAVE good news, we share it with everyone we know.
We meet every Wednesday night from 7:30-9:00pm in the YAC, door 7
We have student-led worship, a large group teaching, followed by small-group discussion
Everyone is welcome!
