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:

IGLESIA COMUNIDAD CHRISTIANA INTERNACTIONAL
PO Box 47, Lavonia, GA 30553 Physical Address: Meet at FBC Lavonia, 95 Boman St., Lavonia Call for service times Rev. Wilmer Marin, 706-498-6521 firstname.lastname@example.org **************************************************************************** The mission of "Comunidad Cristiana Internacional" is to reach for Christ the Hispanic community that lives and works in the counties that make up our Tugalo Baptist Association. We are one of the few Hispanic churches in our area and the ONLY Hispanic Baptist work. In addition to that, we provide a venue for any church in our Association to do international missionary work right here in our own back yard. We serve the Hispanic community by offering ministry opportunities for men, women, children, youths, and social work always with an evangelistic approach. It's our desire to partner with more churches in our Association on a one-on-one basis and share with them how they can help in reaching and impacting the Hispanic community for the Lord. Due to various circumstances such as the lack of employment and for being a very mobile community, the size of our congregation has decreased. However, you will alwaysfind people ready to serve God, their church and help others when needed. We believe that still there is so much to be done in terms of sharing the gospel and because of the very mobility of the community there are new opportunities to share Christ every day. We also believe that God loves all people and that He desires to plant a church where the Word is truly taught and where His name can be glorified, through the hands of the joint effort of Anglo and Hispanic believers. For more information contact Wilmer Marin 706-498-6521 or email email@example.com

History The WMU Scholarship Fund was begun in 1967 by Miss Ethel Haney who gave the first gift to begin the fund. She was a member of Hill Street Baptist Church in Toccoa and was very active in the Associational WMU and general Association work. Miss Ethel began this fund because, at one time in her life, someone had helped her to get an education to become a school teacher. So, she wanted to pass this good turn on by starting financial assistance to help other persons with their education. Many churches and individuals have contributed to the fund through the years until it was large enough to begin distributing scholarships from the interest made on the funds' money. A Scholarship Committee was appointed by the Associational WMU and in 1975, guidelines were established governing this fund.
Guidelines 1. Two scholarships amounting to $400.00 each are to be given each year if funds are available. Additional scholarships may be given during the year if funds are available. 2. Applicant must plan to enroll or be enrolled in one of our Southern Baptist Schools. 3. Applicant must plan to prepare for full-time Christian service. 4. Three letters should be submitted to the Scholarship Committee: A written request from the applicant which services as application, and two letters of recommendation - one from the applicants' Pastor or a church leader, and one from the applicants' employer, school superintendent, principal, or advisor. 5. The Scholarship Committee will study the application and letters of recommendation after which the committee will make its decision.
How To Apply Any person who would like to take advantage of this scholarship and meets the above guidelines can contact Edna Whitworth at 706-886-2718, Associational Ministry Assistant at 706-779-2626.
How To Contribute Any person, at any time, can give to the scholarship fund as an offering or as a memorial or in honor of someone. Contributions can be sent to: Tugalo Bapist Association, WMU Scholarship Fund, c/o Edna Whitworth, 439 Currahee Lane, Toccoa, GA 30577
