Theme Memory Verse
“The LORD is faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made.” Psalm 145:13
After God, in his great mercy, sent Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden, they obeyed God’s command to be fruitful and multiply by having many sons and daughters. One of those sons was named Seth. Seth also had many sons and daughters, and those sons and daughters had sons and daughters too. Eventually one of Adam’s great, great, greeeat grandsons was born, and he was named Noah.

Narrator 1: Many generations had come and gone since the time of Adam and Eve. And the LORD looked down on the earth and saw how wicked the people had become.
Narrator 2: Every thought was evil all the time.
Narrator 1: All the time?
Narrator 2: Yes, they were wicked, all the time.
Narrator 1: So the LORD said, “I will wipe these wicked people from the face of the earth-- and all the creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air--for I am sorry I made them.”
Narrator 2: But there was a righteous man named Noah who pleased God.
Narrator 1: What does righteous mean?
Narrator 2: Doing what’s right. Noah obeyed God.
Narrator 1: So God told Noah to build an ark.
Noah: Ok, I’ll take it from here. God told me to build an ark.
Narrator 1: What’s an ark?
Noah: A really, really, reeeally big boat.
Mrs. Noah: When I heard that God wanted my husband to build a really, really, reeeally big boat, I couldn’t understand why, because we didn’t even live near a lake or ocean!
Noah: That’s true, but God told me to build it.
Mrs. Noah: And when God tells you to do something, you better do it.
Narrator 2: That is correct, madam!
Noah: God told me there was so much violence and wickedness on the earth that he was sorry he ever created people! In fact, he was so sorry that he decided to destroy the entire earth!
Mrs. Noah: So my Noah did what God told him to do.
Noah: First, God gave me a wonderful promise; he told me he would make an agreement with me and my family. He told me he would save us from being destroyed; and that’s why I was supposed to build the ark!
Mrs. Noah: But we still couldn’t quite figure out why we needed a boat!
Noah: Yes, that’s true, but God told me exactly how to build the ark. And once I finished building it, God told me to bring two of every kind of animal into the ark, and food for us and the animals. He also told me to bring some extra animals for sacrificing.
Mrs. Noah: So Noah did exactly what God told him to do.
Noah: Then it happened. It started raining and God told us to get into the ark.
Mrs. Noah: So we did what God told us to do. Noah and I and our three sons and their wives got into the ark, along with all those animals, and then God shut the door.
Noah: And the springs under the earth burst open, and the floodgates of heaven poured out. It came down like you’ve never seen it!
Mrs. Noah: It rained cats and dogs! No, just kidding. The cats and dogs were in the ark. It rained for 40 days and 40 nights until the entire earth was covered with water!
