Legacy Committee

Throughout the long history of the Linworth United Methodist Church, our members have given gratefully and unselfishly to help our church flourish.  We are striving to fulfill our mission to make disciples for Jesus Christ by building a community of deeply committed Christians who love God, love each other, and love our neighbors.

These gifts are truly gifts of a lifetime that give back to enable the church to fulfill its mission.
