What's Included


The Hermosa Seventh-day Adventist Church is located in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota. There are approximately 40 members meeting each week, and many volunteer at the Black Hills Health and Education Center. However, the members do not have a church of their own. For the last several years, they have been meeting at the Health and Education Center, but the members would like to have the church in a more accessible location to draw community members. They have requested Maranatha’s assistance in building a new church facility.
