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 preserved 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 admired 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 historical 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.
