Bunches Church

Bunches Church.


Bunches Church, near Black Creek, Wilson County.


This passage is from Black Creek: The First One Hundred Years, published by the Black Creek Historical Society in 1984. If Bunches is indeed one of Wilson County’s earliest African-American congregations, it dates from about 1866. June G. Evans was a white farmer who lived in the Black Creek community. I have not been able to identify with certainty the Reverend Bunch who lent his name to the church, but it was probably Mack Bunch.
