Giving

All In Campaign for the Annual Church Budget

The stewardship of our finances is an often overlooked area of our lives where we can practice our Christian devotion. Through generosity we share the gifts God has given us. “For it is in giving that we receive.” God’s provision allows us to live open-handedly so we can grow as we give. During this giving season, please prayerfully consider your support of the ministries of Peachtree Road. Your gifts make ALL things possible.

Your support of Peachtree Road’s annual church budget allows the day-to-day ministry and operations of the church to flourish, supporting staff, children and student programs, missions, care ministries, and more. We take the stewardship of your gift seriously, and you can be assured it is used to best further the mission of our church in our community and in our world.

Click here to make your pledge. Thank you.
