FIND A CHURCH
Welcome to the West Forest United Methodist Church, home of the (former) Buffalo BBQ. Our church was established in 1892 and is now designated a Michigan Historical Site. Our mission statement is as follows: "We the people of the West Forest United Methodist Church are a small congregation attending a rural church set among cornfields and farmland. We desire to grow in the knowledge, experience and love of God through faith, fellowship and worship. We are striving to reach out and invite others to join us and help spread the Good News of Christ." Although West Forest is located in a rural area, the landscape is rapidly changing. We still have cornfields, but new homes are appearing all around us. We do hope you will visit West Forest and experience the friendliness and faithfulness of our small church. You will immediately become a part of our church family.
What To Expect
We sing traditional hymns in our 10:00 a.m. Sunday service. When arriving, park to the front and west side of the church, with additional parking located across the road to the south of the church. Handicap parking is available close the church's front entrance. On the west side of the church we have a newly built sidewalk and ramp for wheelchair access. Greeters, just inside the front entrance, will hand you a program for the service. We do not have a nursery for the children, but a children's message is incorporated into the regular service. Bags of interesting things to do are available for the young children as they are seated beside their parents. At various times we have breakfasts after the Sunday service or meals in the evening. Our Buffalo Barbecue dinners were served from 1980-2006 and totaled over $60,000 in donations to charities. We now focus on our annual church rummage sales and Harvest Dinners.

Our Women's Group makes bibs and lap robes for those in area nursing homes and hospitals. Donated crafts from the Women's Group and congregation are sold at a local craft show. Crafts are always needed. We have a mitten tree, which holds mittens, hats and scarves for the needy. Our church adopts families and provides them with clothing, personal items, or whatever is necessary. We have a large group of ladies who scrapbook once a month and the "scrap fee" is donated to the church where needed. We have dreams for the 24.13 acres of land purchased and paid for by our church. Since we are a small church a person can become very involved and help with activities and projects to make these dreams materialize.
