Bible Story: Noah Waited | Genesis 8:2-13
Main Point: I Will Be Patient!
Memory Verse: “This is love for God: to keep his commands.” 1 John 5:3a (NIV)
We saw our friend Sunny the Cloud high up in the sky and can you guess which Quest animal we saw floating around up in the sky? Not Black Bear, or Blue Beaver, or White Warthog, but Yellow Yak! Sunny and Yellow Yak saw the Two By Two cruise ship passing by, so we looked down on the cruise ship deck to see how Sydney and Shelby were enjoying their cruise vacation!
When we looked down we saw our friends Sydney and Shelby waiting with Aunt Jessie. The Two By Two had docked at a new city and the crew was preparing so everyone could get off the cruise ship and explore the city. But First Mate Shelley let everyone know the ramp was broken and no one could get off the ship to explore the city until it was fixed. Aunt Jessie told Sydney and Shelby to be patient to get off the ship, but Shelby wanted to try lots of different ways to get off the boat anyways! After Sydney suggested they use a kite to fly off the boat, Aunt Jessie decided it was time for Sydney and Shelby to see the daily Bible story in the cruise ship theater.
During the Bible story of the day, we heard about Noah being on a boat for 150 nights with his family and all kinds of animals. After God made it rain to flood the earth during this time, the water began to dry up! But Noah and his family still had to wait until all the water was completely dry to get off the boat. It was hard for them to wait for such a long time, but they knew being patient was the right thing to do. Alongside Sydney and Shelby, Quest children learned “I Will Be Patient!” from our Bible story.
Sunny the Cloud has so much fun up in the sky so high with his Quest Animal friends. Each weekend we will meet a different Quest Animal up high in the sky and each weekend children can collect these special Quest animal clouds. Any child who collects six of the nine Quest Animal clouds and brings their Sunny the Cloud poster August 16 or 17 will receive a Sunny the Cloud Memory Game!
This weekend we met Sunny’s friend, the Yellow Yak. CLICK HERE to download the Yellow Yak cloud.
We are so proud of the children who have memorized the verse 1 John 5:3a. But, we are excited for the many more who are continuing to work hard to learn God’s Word! Try reviewing the verse with your child during dinnertime using the hand motions below:
This is love (cross arms over chest)
for God: (point up)
to keep (point to head)
his commands. (two thumbs up)
1 John 5:3a (NIV)
Children will have the opportunity to say the memory verse every weekend of the series for a Sunny pop!
