“Is It Time Yet?" is a 4-week Sunday School digital curriculum series designed to help you point the children of your church to Christ this Christmas season. Through hands-on activities, Bible study, worship, and more, children will see that the whole of the Bible points to Christ. They'll be convinced that Christmas is about Jesus and that it's as much about Jesus on the cross as it is about Jesus in the manger.

The key verse for this unit is Galatians 4:4-5
But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
Most children in the church will tell you that Christmas is about Jesus, but do they truly believe that to be true? This curriculum takes the naturally anticipatory nature of children toward Christmas and helps them to see that Jesus came to earth at just the right time and for one very specific reason.
