The purpose of Weekend of Compassion is to represent God's heart for the people of the northern Black Hills with our hands.  Each year Countryside chooses a weekend to GO OUT and show God's love by helping those in need in the communities we live in rather than meeting for our typical weekend services.  The communities we touch include Belle Fourche, Lead, Deadwood, Spearfish, Sturgis, Sundance, and Whitewood.

The three categories of need that we focus on are: 

Individual Projects: Projects in or around the homes of the elderly, less fortunate, widows and single-parent mothers. 

Non-Profit Organizational Needs:  Projects that help non-profit organizations such as Bella Crisis Pregnancy Center, HaSapa Native American Ministries, Sturgis Women's Shelter, etc. 

City Revitalization Projects:  Projects in our community that will help our cities become a more beautiful place to work and live.


If you are interested in being considered for a project or know of a project we should consider for this year (May 2018), contact the church office at (605) 642-0585 or email

Weekend of Compassion T-shirts are on sale at Countryside Welcome Desk for $10 during our weekend services (Sizes: Youth Large-Adult XXX-Large).  We are encouraging all people involved with Weekend of Compassion to wear their shirts on the Weekend of Compassion.
