Purpose & Culture

Healing Waters Parish was formed in 2002 to help rural churches in Yellow Medicine County remain financially solvent, yet allow each individual congregation to manage their own programming.  Through the dedication of our congregational leadership, pastor, and staff, we are committed to the teachings of Jesus Christ and are here to spread His message. We are open to worshippers of all ages and backgrounds and strive to lead all who worship with us toward a deeper love for God.

Mission & Ministry

God calls us to mission and ministry in our rural prairie communities and to the world. Gathered in faith and nurtured by Word and Sacrament, we commit ourselves to share a hope for the future, to use our resources and talents guided by the Holy Spirit, and to work together to expand our ministry to serve others in the name of Jesus Christ.

Our Name

The name "Healing Waters Parish" was chosen because each congregation is located in Yellow Medicine County. "Yellow medicine" plants, which grow by the flowing waters of the Yellow Medicine River, were used by the Dakota for their healing powers. In the waters of baptism, we are nourished, healed, and restored. We invite and encourage you to join our healing parish.
