Our center is family oriented and carries a responsibility of care that goes well beyond the child and into each child’s family as well. Our prayer is that when you enter the center, you will witness Christ through each and every person who helps shape the children. Hours of operation are 6 am – 6 pm
Wee Care is committed to providing a loving and positive environment that will instill Christ centered values by embracing the whole child—spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially and physically. It is our goal to teach the truth that each and every person is a child of God and how this plays out in our day to day life.

Kids are a priority for us at Linden Free Methodist Church. From infant to 5th grade. Every child belongs in our Sunday School Program Sunday mornings and our Children’s Church program at 10 am called Kid’s Life. Children are dismissed from the regular service to “Kid’s Life”, a program designed just for them where they will participate in active and fun ways to learn about God’s story.
Youth Ministry (2911) & College Ministry
“2911”Youth Group exists to lead our high school and junior high students into a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ. We provide a high energy atmosphere where teenagers can connect with each other and with God. Students are consistently challenged to live their lives accordance to God’s Word and Way. We accomplish this through experiences such as compelling teaching, the arts, camping, field trips, one-on-one relationships and lots of hands-on experiences. We serve our local community and congregation through projects such as yard work, caring for the less fortunate and maintaining a portion of the US-23 highway. Furthermore, we serve the global community by raising awareness about poverty, supporting a child with a monthly contribution and raising funds for organizations such as World Vision. Our group name comes from Jeremiah 29:11, which reminds us that God has big plans for us. By setting high expectations for our group, we commit ourselves to living our lives God’s way.
Small groups at Linden Free Methodist Church are communities of believers that do life together. We are all at different places in our journey with Christ, but we all share one goal: To follow Jesus wholeheartedly. We laugh together, cry together, learn together, work together, and pray together. We have a number of small groups here in Linden. Most small groups can be joined at any time. Each group picks its own topic for discussion. Our Small Groups meet from September to May.
If you or your kid(s) enjoy playing sports, we have something to offer for all ages.

Financial Peace Ministry
Dee Bedell has a passion for those who are trying to gain financial freedom. She has coordinated Financial Peace University classes since 2010 and became a financial counselor through Dave Ramsey’s training in the spring of 2011. With over 30 years in the banking industry, she provides a unique perspective of how finances can play a part in our everyday lives. Dee can help you with your finances via two different avenues of counsel described below:
Financial Peace University: This 9 week class consists of Dave Ramsey providing you with 7 steps to get to financial peace through his DVD series. The class then takes what Dave has said and discusses specifics determined by the class. Dee coordinates this 1.5 to 2 hour class, usually held in the early evenings. Watch for the next class to be scheduled!
Individual Financial Counseling: Struggling with a particular area in your finances? Whether it is properly putting together a budget or talking to creditors, Dee can meet with you confidentially and help you with your specific needs. Just email her at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will contact you with an appointment.
