Countryside Community Church began as a result of 15 adults who met in the Spring of 1993. This core group of Christians began a new church in the Spearfish area. They were drawn to the ministry by a strong desire to provide something uniquely relevant to unchurched people in the Northern Black Hills.
Countryside Community Church officially began on September 12, 1993.
In 2006, Countryside moved to its new location -- shown here. In 2007, member Dick Hicks conceived the notion of creating a piece of art that would add to the welcoming spirit of the church -- and its "journey of faith." Thus was born the "Journeyer" sculpture, chronicled here.
