Elementary, August 22: Noah and the Flood

Hi Journey Kids parents!

The world was in shambles. Everyone had turned against God. All that is except for one man. Noah. God determined to redeem the world through Noah – but it wouldn’t be easy. He would warn his friends and neighbors about God’s coming wrath to no avail. He’d build a gigantic ark at God’s command. He’d herd two of every kind of animal onto this ark. He’d spend months floating above the earth – the last remnants of life. It was hard but it was worth it. Through Noah, God began again.

When it’s time to begin, start your morning of family worship by watching the short lesson video with your kids. [You can access the videos here.] It’s a great way to engage spiritually with your family.

Here is a snapshot of the lesson details for this week:

Bible Story: Noah and the Flood

Big Idea: God is good, so I can obey Him even when it’s hard.

Memory Verse: “If you love me, you will obey what I command.” John 14:15 (NIrV)

After the video lesson and music, you can use the attached materials to help take your family deeper into the lesson:

I don’t know when it’s been hard for you to obey. What I do know is that God can do incredible things through ONE person – just as He did through Noah. Maybe God wants to do incredible things through your obedience, Maybe He wants to use you to change – even to save – your world.
