It is through the faithful and generous support of the Tugalo Baptist Association churches that the Association is able to accomplish all that it does. The Association has its’ own budget and is not supported by gifts to the Cooperative Program. The money given by the Tugalo Baptist Association churches helps support:
EVANGELISTIC BLOCK PARTY TRAILER
In 2016, the Tugalo Baptist Association purchased a trailer and stocked it for churches to use for outreach opportunities.
Included with the trailer are games, tents, tables, dry inflatables, a popcorn machine, a Sno-Cone machine, and more.
We have been blessed by donation of extra inflatables that can be reserved separate from the trailer.
In order to be eligible to use the trailer and/or inflatables: * Be a member church of the Tugalo Baptist Association * Have a responsible adult, 18 years or older, and member of the church reserving the trailer and/or inflatables, be in agreement to oversee the usage while in their possession so that it is returned with all items dry and in place. * If not, they will be responsible to arrange a time to meet at the Association office to clean and arrange trailer and/or inflatables for the next church. * If a church continuously returns trailer and/or inflatables in unacceptable condition, they will lose their privilege to use both. * For more Information and/or forms that are to be completed and returned upon reservation, please contact the Association Office.
