There are ten Southern Baptist Churches in Bullock County. November 8 was "Disaster Relief Appreciation Day" in the Southern Baptist Convention.

Southern Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers have had busy weeks since Hurricane Laura made landfall in southwest Louisiana on August 29, 2020, followed by Hurricanes Sally, Delta, and Zeta that was the 27th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season.

In the aftermath of those three storms, the Southern Baptist Disaster Relief prepared more than 563,000 meals, completed more than 3,000 chainsaw jobs, and reported 543 people making professions of faith in Jesus Christ through October 25, 2020.

The ten Southern Baptist Churches in Bullock County helped in this effort because they contribute funds for projects sponsored by the Southern Baptist Convention.

These ten churches in Bullock County are Eastside, Faith, First Baptist, Indian Creek, Inverness, Liberty, Loftin, Macedonia, Midway, and Mt. Carmel. Rev. Gene Bridges, pastor of Eastside Baptist Church, is the Director of Missions for the ten churches in the Bullock Baptist Association.
