Grace Baptist Church

Grace Baptist Church: located in the heart of Sunnyville, the Grace Baptist Church was built in 1958 by the men of the community.

 

When it was built, it was known as the Sunnyville Bible Centre. There were many ministers that preached there. As the years went by, ministers came and left but one of the most memorable ministers was Pastor Smith. He was very kind and had a heart of gold. While Pastor Smith was here, he changed the name of the church to “Grace Baptist Church” for reasons unknown. Every year around Christmas, he would hold a Christmas Banquet in the church where the Sunday School Class would sing Christmas carols for the congregation, followed by a speech from the Pastor then there would be a meal served. The Christmas banquet was held from 7pm to 9pm and became an annual tradition.

 

After a few years, Pastor Smith moved and Pastor Bungay took his position in the church. Pastor Bungay also had a heart of gold and would hold beautiful services every Sunday. Every once in a while, the church would have a special service where ministers from around the county would come in and say a few words and lead the congregation in a sing song.

 

The Grace Baptist Church is still open and have services every Sunday
