Jesus is the new and better… Noah

By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family. By his faith he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness that is in keeping with faith.

Intro:
What keeps you safe? Car airbags, fire alarms, staying with a grown up when you’re out. Would you feel safe in a boat you built yourself and shared with a lot of dangerous animals?

Game: Captain’s Coming
All the usual rules; Captains coming (Salute), climb the rigging, scrub the decks, port, starboard, stern, bow (run to the left, right, back, front).

Game: Find the animal pairs
Print out two copies of Animal pairs (because despite what I’ve called it they’re not in pairs) cut out each animal individually and hide them around the room. In teams or as individuals hunt for the pairs of animals, all animals must be in pairs before they are brought to ‘safety’.
