Methodist Church

Sermon Series: Noah and the Flood

June 29 - God v. Humans.

We'll address whether this story is true and then turn to one of its primary reasons for being included in the OT: Noah's story is the constant struggle between the Divine will and the human will. We will talk about our own struggles with God's will and how Noah's story can shape ours.

July 6 - Is God Mean?

Why would God wipe out all creation? Would God really do that? Is God a god of vengeance and meanness? We will also talk about the problem of evil.

July 13 - A Promise of Hope

We'll examine the promise God made to Noah and how that promise still is good today; what it means that God "remembered" Noah and how He remembers us daily.
