Dear Fellow Congregation Members,
I love Peachtree Road UMC. My wife, Cindy, and I have been members for 34 years and I’ve been blessed to serve in a number of volunteer leadership capacities over these years. As the current lay leader for our church, one of my duties is to “foster awareness of the role of laity both within the congregation and through their ministries” of our church. These ministries are our ministries. Our church accomplishes so much through the areas of worship, connect, care, serve and learn, but we can and need to do even more.
When we join the church, we pledge to support our church with our prayers, presence, gifts and service. It’s the time of year for our annual campaign and your church needs you and your response. I encourage you to prayerfully consider your pledge to the church budget for the next year. Whether your pledge is $5, $500, $5,000 or even $50,000, your pledge matters and makes a difference to what this church is able to do for our community and the world. Each and every pledge counts and we’ll need all of us to be “All In” to reach our goal of $7.8 million. I and the other leaders of the church are committed to providing you with more information and education about the significant difference that our church makes and our ambitious plans for ministry for the next year.
Please view the information on these web pages and prayerfully consider how you will generously support the work of your church.
Thank you in advance for your consideration and your pledge during our annual campaign which culminates on Harvest Sunday, November 19. If you have any questions, please reach out to me or anyone in the church business office and be a part of the wonderful work that happens through this church’s ministries.
Gratefully, John Ethridge | PRUMC Lay Leader
