Middle School Xtreme Edge

Middle School Youth Minister/EDGE Coordinator: Theresa Benson 704-543-7677 x 1044

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.  - 1 Timothy 4:12

St. Matthew’s Xtreme EDGE Ministry is committed to providing a spiritual voice and guidance to our middle school youth through fellowship, service, catechesis and prayer.


Xtreme EDGE Nights

These nights combine the spiritual and the social, allowing the middle schooler to explore their role in our Catholic faith.

So, just what is Xtreme EDGE?

It’s a guide to surviving and enjoying middle school. It’s a place to hang out with your friends, make new friends and discover the Best Friend you’ll ever have. The middle school years are one of the toughest times of life to navigate through, and Xtreme EDGE is a ministry here to let them know that they are not alone. It gives the youth a place to belong, where they can come and have fun in a safe environment, feel important to their parish family and have an encounter with their ever-loving Father.

If you are in 6th, 7th or 8th grade, Xtreme EDGE is waiting for you!

Friday nights, once a month; themes and activities vary from service projects, to movie nights, to relay games, dodgeball, good food and everything in between!
