A brief note about the history of our church. Following Emancipation, a small band of ardent Christians held cottage meetings to worship the Lord. In 1874, under the latticed branches of a brush arbor, this faithful and devout band of Christians was organized into a more formal and compact church group. Decades later, a new church building was erected and named The Warren Memorial United Methodist Church. The building was completed and dedicated in 1942.
Warren has always provided a place of sanctuary for the educational institutions in the Atlanta University Center. On March 10, 1961, Warren provided a place for the Rev Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and other leaders of the Black Community, including his father “Daddy King” and the head of the local NAACP, the Rev. Samuel Williams, to meet with the Student Leaders of the Civil Rights Movement. Over 1,000 persons were in attendance.
Through our Legacy Brick Pavilion Project Warren Memorial United Methodist Church family, friends and supporters have an opportunity to “buy a brick” leaving a permanent testament of devotion to their beloved church. By purchasing one or more bricks at a cost of $100.00 per brick; individuals, groups and organizations will be contributing to the church Sesquicentennial Capital Campaign. Bricks may be purchased for yourself, in memory of a loved one, in honor of someone, in recognition of a church ministry, a special Warren UMC moment, etc.
In keeping with the Sesquicentennial Capital Campaign’s goals and objectives, the church leadership recognized that Warren needed to make significant investment in its infrastructure and physical plant footprint improvements including repairs, and renovations necessary to continue to deliver on outreach services and ministries to its membership and immediate community families. This would ensure the expansion of its vision and footprint in this new changing and expanding community. It was also essential to make the technological advancements essential to maintain a modern worship experience. Updating our audio and visual equipment and other tools ensured that we continue to be able to consistently engage with and accommodate the diverse needs of our congregation and community.
A successful Legacy Brick Pavilion Project would provide needed funds so that ministry budgets for mission and outreach would not be compromised and physical plant, ministry, and outreach would represent both stewardship and witness for God’s Kingdom in a forever changing community.
