Jubilee Church Teesside | Sun, 21st Jun 2020

Good Morning!

You can join in our Sunday Celebration from here, on Facebook Live from 10:30am or from our YouTube Channel.

Thanks so much for joining us. Our whole weekly celebration is now in one video! Enjoy the welcome, worship and talk here.

Time to Pray

We would love to give you an opportunity to respond to what was shared this morning. If you are watching this with your children, encourage them to get involved with the prayer response too.

  • Why not spend some time this week in intimacy with God. Take 20 minutes to sit in silence or with some worship music playing and reflect on who God is, don’t go with an agenda or a list of prayer points, just spend some time with your Heavenly Father.
  • Are there any situations which you are struggling with? Come to God in intimacy and ask him to work in these areas. 
  • Ask God what his plans are for your life, what is he calling you to? Pray and ask God to give you obedience in these areas.
  • Ask God to give you a fresh revelation of who He is, take some time this week to develop a new understanding of God which leads to Holy Fear.
  • Are you fearful of anything at the moment? Ask God to help you through this. 

For Children


Listen and sing to this song together!


Watch this video narrating the story of Noah's Ark with amazing illustrations by Peter Spier (Noah's Ark).

Memory Verse

Hebrews 11:7 (Good News Bible) Actions in square brackets! Try saying out loud with the actions three times, twice a day for 5 days!

It was faith faith faith [look up to God in faith] that made Noah hear [put one hand by your ear] God's warning [make a cross with your arms, crossing on the lower arm] about things in the future [point in front of you with your arm outstretched] that he could not [wag your finger] see [point to your eye, try not to poke your eye by accident!].  

He obeyed [nod] God God God [point up to God] and built [air hammer your other fist] a boat in which he [point to yourself] and his family [put out your arms like you are about to hug a group of people] were saved [cheering with your arms].  

As a result [air draw an equals sign], the world [air draw a circle with two hands, starting at the top] was condemned [air draw a cross over the circle you have just air drawn], and Noah received [two hands in front of you to receive] from God [point up to God] the righteousness [act out putting a cloak of righteousness around your shoulders] that comes by faith faith faith [look up to God in faith].


The ark represents Noah's faith.  The rainbow represents the faithfulness of God.
You need: two paper plates, stapler and staples, colouring pens/crayons..., animal crackers/biscuits/sweets/use animal stickers and stick them on card and cut them out/draw your own animals and cut them out to put them in the ark! See what you have at home that you could use!
Alternatively use a cereal box and cut out two circles of card.  Or you could try making from felt and sewing around the bottom half and adding colour by stitching on ribbons/buttons etc. Taken from


What you need:  A big clear bowl/jug, water, purple food colouring (or red and blue), two oranges/satsumas.

Fill the bowl/jug with water, colour the water, peel one of the oranges. 

What happens when you put the unpeeled orange into the water? 
What happens when you put the peeled orange in the water?

The purple water represents God's grace/favour/kindness/compassion.  
The orange represents people whose lives are lived for the sinful nature. This orange is not wholly in the purple water.  
The peeled orange is the person who lives to please God.  The sinful nature has been stripped away.  This orange is completely submerged in the purple water.  This person finds grace in the eyes of God!
Noah found grace in the eyes of God Genesis 6:8
God remembered Noah Genesis 8:1

Here is a picture of a life-size replica of the Ark that Noah built. It is 13.7 metres high, 137.2 metres long and 22.9 metres wide!


  • How would God describe you? Living to please Him or following your sinful nature?
  • Are you living a life full of faith like Noah?
  • Do we follow God's plans or do we insist on having our own way?
  • Do we trust God to know what's best?

There is a big difference between the wicked and the blameless.  It is reasonable to suppose that the wicked people around him mocked/teased/made comments about him/ill treated Noah as he built the ark inland.  It must have seemed pretty unlikely that there was going to be a worldwide flood, as Noah was saying there would be.  He worked hard over a very long time (it is likely it took decades) to complete the ark, while others were getting on with their daily life.  If you have a look at the full size replica of Noah's Ark (above), it would be a huge job these days, let alone in the days of Noah relying upon manual technology. What obedience! Was Noah swayed by the jeering of the wicked?

  • Do we stand firm like Noah when people tease us for believing in God?


Lord, I thank you for Noah's faith.  Help me to remember Noah, and be inspired by Him to keep my eyes fixed on you in faith, and be obedient to what you are asking me to do, and not to be swayed by others who may not understand my faith, or my actions.  Amen.

Some of this material has been put together using the book, Digging up the past, discover for yourself, Genesis 3-11, Kay Arthur and Janna Arndt
