Opening- Welcome and Lesson Introduction:

Shepherds will be responsible for attendance. Include the Shepherds in class discussion and prayer time. Give the Shepherds opportunity to interact with the children.
Open with a prayer.
Dig-Main Content and Reflection:
Talk about covenant – what it means and what it includes. (See reference sheet: The Covenant, God’s Nature Revealed - A Biblical Explanation). This is the most important part of the lesson. Be sure to give special emphasis to the information included.
Bible Passage: Tell the story from your choice of the passages. Always tell the children where in the Bible the story is found. NOTE: Special emphasis should be given to the promises made to Noah by God.
- What do you think of a person who does not keep his promises? Will you believe him the next time he promises something?
- What do people think of you when you do not keep a promise? Will they believe you the next time you promise something?
- Why is it important to keep a promise? Does God ever break a promise? Can you find any place in the Bible where God made a promise, but never kept it?
- What do you think Noah and his family did when they saw that God kept His promise? What would you have done if you had been Noah and had just been saved from the flood? What are some promises that you can make to God?
Soap Bubble Painting – Make soapsuds and bubbles in a bowl of water. Streak food coloring through the bubbles. Using a permanent maker, write one of the memory verses on a sheet of paper. Place the paper print-side down on top of the bubbles to make a color design on the paper. Lift the paper carefully and allow to dry.
Shepherds will work with the children on their prayer journals and close with prayer.
End with a prayer.
