About Local Outreach

Local Outreach at Sunset Church is all about proclaiming the Gospel through direct service efforts within our immediate community.

Sunset houses Helping Hands, a nonprofit ministry that includes a food pantry, clothes closet, and backpack program.


We also seek to build strong partnerships with local organizations and work alongside them to serve our community in tangible, sustainable ways that reflect the heart of Christ.
