COVID-19 Noonday Updates
UPDATE: Thursday, March 26, 2020
Dear Noonday Family:
We are certainly facing some unchartered territory in these challenging days but God is faithful and He will deliver us. We are continuing to abide by the recommendations of our local and national governments with no gatherings on campus. Here are this week’s updates:
Sunday Morning Service: The online streaming of last Sunday’s service was successful. We will continue to broadcast in the same manner every Sunday morning at 10:00am. Accessing those services will always be the same link shown here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCnx38Bm29ml2o6jvy5FnAgA/
This link is also on the home page of our website and will be posted with the sermon title each week. Once you click the link, there is an option to subscribe, click it and that’s all you do. Links to past sermons will still be available on our website under the Connect tab.
Giving: Please remember that your tithe is very important during this time. We are receiving gifts during March to fund VBS for Haiti--to give please indicate “Haiti” on your envelope or online. You can continue your faithful giving of your tithes and offerings online on our website by clicking this link: www.noondaychurch.org/give . Or you can mail your giving envelope to the church office at: Noonday Baptist Church, 4121 Canton Road, Marietta, GA 30066.
Serving: As a church, we are called to serve each other with the love of Christ. We have put together a team who will help deliver essential needs to our senior adults and those in need in our congregation. If you know of anyone who is in need of basic provisions or assistance, please contact Vicki Najor at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We are also collecting canned and non-perishable food items to help supply the needs of our community. Please donate to the bin located outside the door of the church office as we reach out this week to feed the residents of our local Metro Lodge.
“The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.”
Continue to believe that God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power! Let’s be the church who reaches out to others, prays for each other, and encourages others as we trust in the One who holds our future. Know that you are loved!
Dr. Mark Somers,

AN IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM PASTOR MARK:
Dear Noonday Family:
Due to the recent reports of COVID-19 in our area, we have been closely monitoring updates from the CDC and local authorities and have decided on a plan of action for our church as follows:
Sunday Services – This Sunday, March 15th we will continue with both the 9:30am and the 11:00am service as usual. This includes all LIFE Groups and Childcare. We will continue to monitor the situation and will update our decision for future Sunday schedules within the coming week. Watch for those details.
Weekly Activities – We will follow the Cobb County School System’s schedule and will close all weekly campus activities beginning Monday, March 16th until further notice. This includes all weekday events, Wednesday night events and weekend events on the Noonday campus.
Noonday Preschool Academy – Our Preschool will also follow the Cobb County School System, closing this Monday, March 16th until further notice.
This plan is not based in fear but rather a concern to stay prepared in order to protect our members. We will continue to monitor updates and will make changes as needed based on recommendations of the CDC and local authorities. Over the next couple of weeks, reach out to your church family, check on each other, pray for each other, and be an encouragement to one another. Remember that God’s got this. “For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7. God is, has always been, and will always be in complete control of your circumstances.
We will send out updates as they arise and commit to doing everything we can to remain calm and trust in God for all things. Stay well, use proper precautions as described by the CDC, and know that you are loved.
