The White County Baptist Association is a member of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board. The WCBA includes 12 member churches: Bethel, Center, Chattahoochee, Cleveland First, Friendship, Helen First, Mt View, Mt Yonah, Shoal Creek, Tesnatee, Union and White Creek Baptist Churches. We encourage and assist each other, our pastors, and members. We work with our communities for good while spreading the Word and encouraging people to find a home church.
2020 was a challenging year. The Association has been working to overcome COVID just as any other group. In years past the WCBA was host to the annual Compassion Week which includes a family-fun day at Freedom Park. This ministry includes teams going into the community to assist with community projects, such as construction assistance. Even though COVID has been present, some of the projects have been on-going.
The WCBA has hosted the Georgia Baptist Dental Mobile Clinic the last couple years and offered free dental procedures to the public. 2020 we were unable to do this. We pray to be able to do this again soon!
The Association also supports many local organizations like the Cleveland Care Center, Caring and Sharing, Catalyst Christian Learning Center, Backpack Buddies, Appalachian Backpack Ministry, and the athletic program in the schools. Yearly the White County Baptist Association awards a scholarship to a deserving student at Truett McConnell University.
The WCBA churches work together to assist each other. If one has a need for workers for VBS, food pantry, training, we can draw upon each other. Just let the Association know, and we will get the word out. We have also had the Wild Game Dinner in years past, a multi-church evangelistic gathering to spread God’s Word, working together for the joy of the Lord.
