A Children’s Message on Noah’s Ark, January 21, 2015

When God saw that many people were bad and selfish and didn’t take care of the earth, God sent a flood. But Noah and his family had a soft spot in God’s heart, so God told Noah, “Build and ark. Make it really big and go into it with all the animals that I want to save and then enter it yourselves and you and your three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth and your wives will be saved.

People thought Noah was crazy. They did not believe in climate change. So when it rained forty days and forty nights and a great flood covered the land, Noah and his family and all the animals in the ark were saved, but not the people who didn’t believe God’s warning. Question: Did Noah take any fish on the ark? Why didn’t he take two whales, two dolphins, and a couple of salmon, two of every kind of fish? He could have had an aquarium. Answer: of course they would not drown in the water, but would up in the air.

Now our whole earth has gotten very small. Some people call our little planet, the space-ship earth. It has become like Noah’s ark and we have to save all the animals and all the people from a big flood, if all our glaciers melt and our oceans keep rising. We even have to save our fish, because they will also die if our coral reefs don’t survive our warming oceans.

Not only our planet has become a Noah’s ark, but we are all baptized with water and we sail in the ship of the church. Our church is also like Noah’s ark, and saves us from the water’s chaos and destruction. So let’s listen to God, take care of the earth, take care of the animals, and obey and follow Jesus, so that we are saved.

God promised to save us and that’s why there’s a rainbow in the sky. So whenever we see a rainbow, let’s raise our eyes up to heaven, and believe God’s promises. Amen.

The Rainbow Song

              God placed a beautiful rainbow

                   in the sky

              and promised to save everybody

                   even children like you and I.

              God’s friendly first new covenant

                   To Noah in the ark he sent

                        O’er the raging flood.

Then Jesus died upon the

cross

To save us sinners

             who were lost

   By shedding his blood

                        – for us.

             God placed a beautiful rainbow

                   in the sky

              and promised to save everybody

                   so children now don’t you cry.

March 26th 2000 melody from

              “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

This was sung at the beginning. The X stands for clapping.

  1. The Lord told Noah: there’s gonna be a floody, floody

The Lord said to Noah: there’s gonna be a floody, floody

Get those children X out of the muddy, muddy, children of the Lord

Refrain after each verse:

So, rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory

Rise and shine, and give God the glory, glory

Rise and shine, and X give God the glory, glory,

Children of the Lord

  1. The Lord told Noah to build him an arky, arky

The Lord told Noah to build him an arky, arky

Build it out of X hick’ry barky, barky, children of the Lord

  1. The animals, they came in, they came in by twosie, twosies

The animals, they came in, they came in by twosie, twosies

Elephants and X kangaroosie, roosies, children of the Lord

  1. It rained and it rained for forty daysie, daysie

It rained and it rained for forty daysie, daysie

Nearly drove those X animals crazy, crazy, children of the Lord

  1. Then Noah he sent out, he sent out a dovey, dovey

Noah he sent out, he sent out a dovey, dovey

Dovey said “There’s clear skies X abovey-bovey”, children of the Lord

  1. The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy

The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy

Everything was X fine and dandy, dandy, children of the Lord

  1. The animals came off, came off in threesies, threesies

The animals came off in threesies, threesies

All the bears and X birds and beesies, beesies, children of the Lord

  1. Now, this is the end of, the end of my story, story

This is the end of, the end of my story, story

Everything is X hunky dory, dory, children of the Lord
