Focus on the Sunday Gospel for the 1st Sunday in Advent.
Use this unit study to help teach children about Jesus' Second Coming and that we should prepare for when He returns. This lesson is based on the Gospel of St. Matthew 24:37-44.
At the end of time, Jesus will return to earth again to judge all people. Only God the Father knows exactly when this time will be, but we must prepare and be alert, because Jesus could return at any moment. We shouldn't be afraid of the Second Coming, but we also shouldn’t be lax and disregard Christ’s warnings to stay awake. There are many ways for us to prepare to meet the Lord when He comes again.
