Ours is a community of many churches. Just about all faiths are represented, though predominantly Christian, predominantly Protestant –– in keeping with the German, Norwegian, Swedish and Danish people who settled the region. People here go to church. They worship. But they also live their faith. You’ll see that through numerous charity events, numerous fundraisers, engaged volunteers. There are too many to list. Some of these are larger efforts –– Relay for Life, the Pipestone United Way –– but they are also for the family displaced by fire, the child with cancer. People are constantly giving time and money, donating possessions or food, harvesting a neighbor’s crop following an illness or death. Ask, and you shall receive here. Actually, you won’t even have to ask. Here, we live our faith.
There are numerous faith opportunities available within Pipestone. Several churches also offer bilingual Spanish mass or services.
