Noah's Ark Sunday School Lesson - Saved!

Use this Noah's ark Sunday school lesson to teach children about why Noah was saved, and why we are!

Needed: Legos or building blocks of some kind

Build a couple of simple objects out of building blocks beforehand. A tower, wall, or small house would work well.

When the children come in, give them some blocks and show them your example. Ask them to build the same thing, just like you did.

Do the same thing with your second object.

When they're finished, say something like, Now that you're all expert block builders, I have an assignment for you. I want you to build a boat that is 450 feet long, 75 feet wide, and 45 feet high. Do you think you can do that? Can you make a boat that big?

Well, we're not actually going to make a boat that big, but one man and his family did.

(Read Genesis 6:5-22.)

God told Noah to build a huge boat, an ark, because He was going to make it rain and flood the whole world. Why was God going to flood the world?

God was going to flood the world because no one believed in Him anymore and they were all doing wrong things and sinning against God all the time.

But God wanted to save Noah and his family and the animals, didn't He? Why did God want to save Noah?

Verse 9 says that Noah believed in God and did what God wanted him to do. Even though everyone else didn't believe in God, Noah did, and so God saved him when He flooded the world by telling Noah to build the ark.

The Bible tells us that God is going to destroy the world again some day. It won't be with a flood though. It will be with fire. But just like Noah, if we believe in God and live how He wants us to, we will be saved when God destroys the world again.

Let's pray about that.

Sample prayer: Father God, You made the world and You can destroy it. You have the right to judge us and to punish us when we do wrong. But we pray that You will help us to believe in You and to live how You want us to live so that we can be saved, just like Noah was. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
