Storehouse Ministries

As November ends, Storehouse is preparing over 700 food boxes for December distribution to those families in need in our community.  This will require approximately 31,500 pounds of food.  Thanks to many generous monetary and food donations, Storehouse is able to offer this ministry to our community.  If you would like to participate in this ministry through giving, contributions may be made to Noonday Baptist Association, Attn: Storehouse Ministries. Volunteer opportunities are available as well to assist with packing food boxes.  Please call Karen at (770) 422-3347 for further information on how your group can be involved.

Special appreciation goes to our phone intake volunteers that have answered hundreds of calls in these last two months.  Special thanks to our Ladies from Piedmont Church and the Sunday School Classes from Roswell Street Baptist Church for assisting with packing boxes and the many churches that have held food drives this month.
Storehouse Ministries is a vital ministry meeting the practical needs of persons in our communities who
fall on hard times.  The ministry is designed not only to provide physical food, but spiritual nourishment
as well.  Storehouse Ministries works with more than 100 Southern Baptist churches and new
congregations in the Noonday Baptist Association.  Each church helps by donating food and funds
to aid those in need. 

Just a reminder that when a person in need calls or comes to your church, give them the Storehouse Ministries phone number, (770) 428-8410.  Do not send them to the Associational office.  Each person must CALL in to Storehouse Ministries to receive help with assistance.  Storehouse Ministries does not accept walk-ins.

CONSIDER becoming a church that regularly contributes to Storehouse Ministries.  Here are some ways your church can do this:

  • Keep boxes in strategic areas of your church facility and have regular collection of food items and delivery dates.
  • Sponsor competitions between Sunday School classes to encourage all ages to give to the needy of our association.
  • Post the General Storehouse Food List in your church.
  • Send in monetary donations to the Storehouse Hunger Fund.  Make checks payable to Noonday Baptist Association and in the memo of the check write Hunger Fund.

However you choose to do it, your steady ministry will be put to good use in drawing the world to God's Kingdom.


Storehouse Ministries presently has 18 pantry churches with food boxes on hand at their church to be distributed to those who contact Storehouse Ministries.  Each box is packed with a Bible and tract.  Members of Pantry Churches make personal contacts and develop relationships with person who contact Storehouse for assistance.  This ministry allows practical needs to be met by a church in the neighborhood of the persons in need with love, compassion, and spiritual hope.

There is a great need for more Pantry Churches.  Please prayerfully consider whether your church can fill this need.  Call Karen Stevens, Storehouse Ministries Coordinator, at (770) 422-3347 for a full explanation of this important ministry role.


Storehouse Ministries depends on volunteers from Noonday Baptist churches.  Volunteers of all ages are needed--from elementary school children to retired adults (children need to be supervised by adults).  This is a way for everyone to become involved in a mission that feeds the needy, carries the Word of God and gives a personal face to Christ Jesus.

Karen Stevens, Storehouse Ministries Coordinator, encourages leaders of RAs, GAs and Youth groups to schedule a time to bring their students to do a mission trip at Storehouse Ministries.  Call (770) 422-3347 to schedule a time to serve.


Together we serve Christ by spreading His love
