Winds of the Prairie Ministries is a group of five ELCA congregations united in mission and faith. Our six churches are spread throughout Lincoln, Lyon and Pipestone Counties of Southwestern Minnesota.

God has planted us in rich prairie soil to nourish the faith, reach out with the good news of Christ, and to serve our neighbors.


Jesus said, "It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy, not sacrifice.' For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners."
- Matthew 9:12-13
