As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them . . . —John 17:18
God sent Christ into the world as our Savior. That’s what Christmas is all about. In turn, Christ sends us into the world. But do we really understand how, where, and why we are sent? This five-week, churchwide Advent study challenges us through story, art, and Bible study to discover what it means to be Christ’s hands, feet, head, and heart.
Centered around a DVD with 8-10 minute videos created by a group of dynamic young pastors, Sent is appropriate for adults and youth. The study includes a Participant Book, a Leader Guide for adult small groups, a Youth Study Guide for students ages 13-18, and The Children’s Leader Guide for use with kids 12 and under. A companion book, Devotions for the Season, offers four weeks of personal daily reflections.
Children 12 and under can also participate in the Sent study with games, activities, and crafts. The Children’s Leader Guide includes ideas for younger, as well as older, children, and the printable handouts make the study easy to manage.
