Methodist Church of Warren
	The Methodist church of Warren is the oldest one of this denomination of
Christians in Rhode Island. Its house is the first one built in the state and the
third in New England. It was dedicated to the worship of God Sept. 24, 1794.
The consecration sermon was preached by the Rev. Jesse Lee from Haggai 2:9
	The compiler of these notes feels hurt that this church shows so decidedly
an incomplete and scanty record. The Methodists by tranferring their
preachers so often will naturally render the vital records of the church very
Scanty because there is no one to see that it is kept up to a standard or is pre-
served after being gathered. It is the honest opinion of the compiler, without
Casting any reflection upon either Methodist of Bapist or whatever faith that
pursues this course, that they are doing a very unwise thing. Much valuable
matter could have been saved had they adopted a course like the Friends whose
records in future will be of priceless value unto all genealogists and will be ad-
mired by those who have no sympathy with their faith but yet will have for
their preserved annals.
	We are pleased to note however that the above named are paying more
attention of late years to those things and we feel assured to say it will be fully
appreciated in the future by those who have need to use these records for his-
torical and genealogical purposes.
	The list given in the following table is taken from Dr. Talbot's history of
the church, published in 1876. We were not able to find any marriages or other
matter recorded previous to this date, neither could we learn of any in existence.
	Note: The date last given shows the year of admission to the church.
