About This Product This unit covers the four Sundays of Advent in Year C. It is designed to help students understand the preparation needed to meet Christ; God's faithfulness in keeping His promises to be with and redeem His people; God's mighty acts in the past as the basis of hope for the future, which is expressed by joy in the present; and God's sovereign acts in history make things right in the long run.

Lesson 1: People Get Ready-We will all meet Christ, either after we die or when Christ comes again, whichever comes first. Living blameless and holy lives is the best way to be prepared for that meeting. Seeking to love God and neighbor with God's kind of love, and actively engaging in the redemption of the world is the best way to be prepared for that meeting. (Jeremiah 33:14-16; Psalm 25:1-10; 1 Thess. 3:9-13; Luke 21:25-36)

Lesson 2: The God Who Redeems-God will make a way for us to find and experience Him, by saving us from the things that destroy our lives, and to the things that strengthen our relationship with God. (Malachi 3:1-4; Luke 1:68-79; Philippians 1:3-11; Luke 3:1-6)

Lesson 3: Spreading Advent Cheer!-Because we know what God has done for His people throughout history, Christians' lives are marked by a confident sense of joy that goes beyond our circumstances. (Zephaniah 3:14-20; Isaiah 12:2-6; Philippians 4:4-7; Luke 3:7-18)

Lesson 4: Give us Justice!-Because God is both merciful and powerful, we can be sure that injustice will be corrected and people will be treated fairly. (Micah 5:2-5a; Luke 1:46b-55; Hebrews 10:5-10; Luke 1:39-45, (46-55))
