Our Preschoolers had so much fun learning about how to obey through the story of Noah and the Ark! In our production time, we defeated Vinny the Villian again by using our Super Book, the bible, to answer the secret questions to unlock the boxes which held our superhero outfits!
Need To Know: "I Can Be A Superhero That Obeys!"
Christ Connection: "Noah obeyed God when God asked him to build an ark. Do you know who else obeyed God? Jesus, our hero, obeyed God! God asked Jesus to die for us so that we could be loved by God. And Jesus obeyed! He gave his life for us!"
Bible Story: Noah's Ark: Genesis 6-9
"God made a beautiful world! But people stopped obeyed God. They said mean things. They didn't care if they hurt each other. God saw this. It made Him very sad. So God talked to a man named Noah.
God said, "I must send a flood. Rain will fall. Water will cover everything." "But your family will be safe. The animals will be safe, too."
"Build a boat, just the way I tell you to build it." Noah and his family listened and obeyed! They chopped trees and cut wood. They pounded boards and brushed on tar. They worked hard for a long time. They did everything God said to do. Finally, the big boat was finished.
Then Noah's family loaded food onto the boat. They carried bundles and baskets up the ramp. Now there was food for hungry animals and hungry people! God said, "Bring the animals into the boat."
Bears thumped up the ramp. Birds flew through the door. Rabbits hopped. Elephants bumped. At last, every kind of animal was safe in the big boat. Noah, his wife and his family came aboard, too. Then God closed the door.
Obeying God helps us stay away from trouble. Obeying shows we love God.
