Our dear friend Noah recently went home to Heaven to be with his Saviour and his sweet wife Violet. Noah had been a deacon of Northside Baptist Church for many years. His service to the Northside community goes all the way back to the founding of the congregation and the construction of the first church building. Noah’s big heart for others was only exceeded by his love for God.
