At Linwood we are all about belonging. Our anthem is simple: Everyone has a place in the family because everyone matters to God. Our mission, whether you are a family of 1 or 12, is to help people discover and use their God-given gifts to lead others to follow Jesus and make a difference in the world. Grow - Serve - Follow. More than words, it's who we are.
Linwood is part of a larger movement of churches and people known as The Wesleyan Church. To learn more about who The Wesleyans are click here.
History of Linwood
Linwood Church was founded in 1963 by Darrell and Ruby Wagner. Originally a small group meeting in the Wagner's home, Linwood has grown to be a dynamic and steady presence in the Sioux Falls community. The congregation moved into its current location in 1989. The gym and south addition were completed in 2005.
Our history includes planting churches locally and working with local ministries to impact the city of Sioux Falls. The gym is utilized by many community organizations and ministries. For us, it is all about adding value to the community and building a spiritual legacy that guides future generations.
