Dr. Wade Lott
Thank you Tugalo Baptists! We had a wonderful celebration of our 200th year as an association at our Annual Fall Meeting. I am grateful to Poplar Springs Baptist Church for serving as the host church for this event. Pastor Bruce McGee and the staff did a wonderful job of preparing for the event and making sure every need was met. I am grateful to Rev. Bill Coen for leading us in worship through music. The combined choir was incredible and the songs of worship ushered us into the throne room of God. I am also grateful for all of the churches that chose to move their evening worship service and join us for worship at the Fall Meeting. Again, we would like to congratulate Mrs. Teresa Smith on her 20th anniversary of serving as the Administrative Assistant. I assure you, things go as smoothly as they do in our association largely in part due to Teresa’s service to Tugalo Baptists.
If your church is participating in the Christmas Backpacks, I want to encourage you to pay special attention to the instructions in the letter that was sent to your church. We are partnering with the Hebron Baptist Association to provide backpacks for Letcher Elementary and Middle Schools in Blackey, KY. These backpacks will be delivered by volunteers from the Hebron Association and there are some special requests that differ from the instructions that the Georgia Baptist Mission Board has given. If you have any questions, please contact our office.
Finally, the Tugalo Association Toy Store (TATS) is right around the corner and we need your help. First, we need your help in collecting new toys that can be given to the families. Second, we need a few people to help set up the room on Thursday, December 6th. Third, we need volunteers to serve as “shoppers” and escort our guest families as they select toys for their children. Finally, we need people to serve as counselors to pray with and share the Gospel with those that visit our Toy Store.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve you as your Associational Missionary. I pray that you have a blessed Thanksgiving season!
In HIS Service,
