Noah’s Flood Story (Genesis 7-8)
Final Preparations – ark & storm – Noah’s family made final preparations for the flood. They collected all the animals and food on board; then, God sent the storm.
Baptized Mountains – mountain, ocean, ark – God protected the ark as he sent the flood that covered the earth. The oceans rose above the highest mountains.
New Growth – dove & branch – The flood waters slowly receded, and the ark returned to land. As the earth dried, Noah sent birds to search for fresh vegetation.
Fresh Covenant – altar, beast, fire, smoke – God told Noah’s family to leave the ark and release all the animals. Noah built a worship altar and sacrificed burnt offerings. God promised never to send another flood.
