Noah’s Soda Shoppe specializes in ice cream floats and shakes. And Noah is one righteous, cool dude in the eyes of God. But today isn’t just another day at the Shoppe. Noah has heard from God that He’s going to flood the earth and clean the land of its wicked ways… so Noah had better build a big boat. All the local citizens think Noah’s mind has floated off with his ice cream. However, the rain soon comes and everyone is scrambling to survive. It’s Noah and his family who are safe and dry (along with a pair of every living animal!) on this rockin’ zoo cruise. Join Noah, his family and The Rainbowettes (Shonda, Rhonda and Flo) as they tell the classic story of Noah in a 1950s setting – affirming that listening to God, doing His will, and trusting His promises is indeed the coolest way to live happily ever after!

Roser Church is located near the Anna Maria City Pier at 512 Pine Avenue. Bring the family and enjoy the day on beautiful Anna Maria Island. For more information call the church office at 941-778-0414, email info@roserchurch.com, go to roserchurch.com or find us on Facebook @roserchurch.
