Lesson 1: Noah obeys God

Readings: Genesis 6: 5-22

When God first made our world, everything was good and beautiful. Before long, Adam and his family disobeyed Him. God was sorry that He had ever made them. But there was one man, Noah, who really pleased God!

Lesson 2: Safe in the Ark

Readings: Genesis 7: 1-16

During the time that Noah was building the Ark he told the people about what God was going to do. But nobody believed Noah. They just laughed at him!

Noah and his family went into the Ark. Soon it began to rain. It rained and rained and rained, day after day after day! The rivers and seas became great floods. All the trees and hills were covered in water.

The people outside the Ark now believed Noah, but it was too late to get into the Ark.
God had shut the door!

Lesson 3: A brand new start

Readings: Genesis 8: 1-19

At last the rain had stopped. But the floods still hid the mountains from sight.

One day, Noah sent a raven from the Ark, to see if the water had gone down, but the raven never came back.

Later, Noah sent out a dove. A week later he sent it again and everyone was really pleased when it came back with an olive leaf in its beak. This meant that the tops of the trees were now above the water.

Seven days later, Noah sent out the dove again. This time it did not come back. Noah knew
that the water had gone down still further, and the dove had found a new home.

Lesson 4: God’s promise

Readings: Genesis 8: 20-22 & 9: 8-17

Noah and his family were safe! They had been in the Ark for a long time, but now God said
that Noah, his family and the animals could leave the Ark.

Noah said “Thank You” to God for keeping him and his family safe.
