"Noah and his Ark" Sermon Series • June 5 - June 19

"Noah and his Ark"... from the simple children’s Bible story to the Hollywood blockbuster version released in 2014, the story of Noah frequently raises questions:

Did it really happen?
Why are there flood stories in different cultures and religions around the world?
Has Noah’s ark been found?
Why would a loving God destroy the earth with a flood?

We invite you to join us for our next series of messages from Pastor Eric Yeakel entitled, "Noah and His Ark". During this sermon series we will explore the deeper meaning of the story of Noah and its message for us today.


June 5: Evil, Corruption and the Grief of God // Genesis 6:5-8, 11-13

The story of Noah is an indictment upon humanity. It tells us something we already know but sometimes forget: Humanity can be evil both in our actions and in our hearts; we often abuse, misuse and ruin God’s world, the earth; and violence, cruelty and oppression so easily becomes our way of life.  In week one, we will learn something about God as he reacts to the violence. We will also learn why Noah stood out from his generation and what that means for us.

June 12: The Ark, the Animals and the Flood Waters // Genesis 6 & 7

In week two of this series we’ll consider the ark, God’s concern for the animals, and reflect on what we learn about the storm and floodwaters.  We will see what they mean for us and for the church.

June 19: After the Flood // Genesis 8

Noah, his families and the animals floated on the waters for five months. Then Genesis 8:1 says: “But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and all the domestic animals that were with him in the ark.” This word “remembered” is an important one in scripture. It means not only to remember, as we think of it, but to be concerned about and therefore to act on behalf of another. So when God remembers, he has compassion and he saves. When God remembers, he acts on behalf of the one he remembers.
