Connect to Christmas joy, past and present
Advent and Christmas are seasons of hope. The new liturgical year and the expectation and renewal that accompany the Nativity bring so much joy to adults and students alike.
This season of expectation can also get overwhelming for teachers. So much occurs within a span of just four weeks, and we want to help you by offering an entire middle school lesson plan for you.
Taken from Connect! Bringing Faith to Life, this Advent lesson for middle schoolers is a perfect way to introduce your students to the Old Testament prophets and their prophecies about the Messiah, helping them to prepare their hearts for Christ in the same way the people of the Bible did!
