When we learn about the complexities of our faith in relation to others, we begin to have a deeper understanding of our world, and ourselves. Group Bible Study is a core practice at Peachtree Road for these reasons. This is one of our most transformative practices, and one worth intentionally exploring.  Come enjoy lively discussion, discover new perspectives and gain new insight!

We have different formats for study to accommodate life and schedules. Some are more casual and some require a deep commitment. We would love to help you find which is right for you. Please contact Rev. Elizabeth Byrd at 404.240.8227 or elizabethb@prumc.org.
