Fast Facts: Sunset Forest Baptist Church was founded in 1947 as an extension of the mill villages of that time. The church has grown through the ages, adding a fellowship hall and parsonage. Sunset host typical outreach ministries such as VBS and a Fall Festival, but also operates a food pantry and clothes closet in an attempt to better reach the community
in a spiritual sense by meeting physical needs. Each year when kids go back to school, the church provides backpacks with school supplies to help kids in need. Each backpack also has a Bible in it. Last year, the church began a “drive thru” prayer gathering each month. Several members gather in the parking lot flagging those passing by to come in and receive prayer. They’ve had success with people stopping by but it is their hope to use this as an outreach tool to reach the lost and unchurched as well as to offer love to those in spiritual need.
