Midweek Update (1.27.21): Welcome New Lead Team Members, A Survey, & More…
Welcome New Lead Team Members & Conference Delegate!
Our Lead Team functions as our Board of Administration. They are responsible for helping to discern the Vision and Mission that the Lord has for Warren Road Church, as well as making sure we are doing all we can to stay faithful to the Lord’s leading.
Back at the end of December, all members in good standing received a ballot that included 5 awesome nominees for the Lead Team. Given the delays with the mail, we wanted to give plenty of time for all ballots to be received.
We are excited to announce our new Lead Team members who were elected to a 3 year term, and participated in their first Lead Team meeting on Monday evening: Seth Hovestol and Joy Shamley!
The Lead Team also unanimously elected Tiffany Cousino to serve as our church’s delegate to the Southern Michigan Conference. The delegate serves as a liaison between our church, and the larger network of churches we belong to (the Southern Michigan Conference of the Free Methodist Church). Tiffany will also serve as an ex-officio (non-voting) member of the Lead Team.
We are thrilled to be blessed with these awesome leaders who are serving in new leadership roles! Please be in prayer for our Lead Team as we seek the Lord’s guidance, wisdom, and power in 2021!
Blessings on your week,
Children’s Ministry & Online Service Survey
Would you be willing to take a few minutes to answer a few questions? The purpose of this survey is two-fold. One, as we make plans to resume in person Children’s Ministry, we have some questions for parents and grandparents, as well as questions that apply to anyone in the church. We are making sure to follow all necessary safety guidelines, which includes making sure that we can be adequately staffed with volunteers.
Two, we want to make sure that we aren’t leaving anyone behind as we’ve transitioned the way we do our online Sunday morning service. Please take a couple of minutes to complete the survey below. Thank you!

Harvest Offering Update
Our goal for this year’s Harvest offering was $7,500. We exceeded our goal and received $9,235!! Way to go Warren Road Church! Thank you for your generosity.
Last night, our Lead Team voted to put $4,000 of that into our Reserve Fund, which gets us back up to $5,000 in our General Reserve Fund. The other $5,235 will be placed in our Outreach and Benevolence Funds which will help us continue to meet needs and ministry opportunities in the year ahead! Again Thank you so much for your generosity!!
Accessing Sunday’s Online Service
Last Sunday, we began streaming our services differently. To see why we did that, you can check out the tutorial video from last week. While you can access a link to the service on our Facebook page, you can no longer watch the live service on Facebook. You must either click the link on Facebook or go to our website http://warrenroadchurch.com and click “Live”, or go to http://live.warrenroadchurch.com.
Once there, you can participate in the chat function. @e also encourage everyone to click the “Invite” button, which allows you to share our service on your own personal Facebook page, so that your family and friends can join you.
In case you missed it, you can watch last week’s video tutorial which explains we we’ve made the transition, and how you can still access the service. Just CLICK HERE to watch the video.
