Great Things Are Happening

January 12, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you well. I realize some of you may be out of town for the upcoming holiday weekend, and I want to give you an update on what is happening at your church.

On Sunday, we will continue our series of messages on the power of prayer. Last week we made a good beginning as we considered Jesus’ baptism. According to Luke, after his baptism, Jesus spent time in prayer, and, as he was praying, the heavens opened, the Spirit descended, and a voice proclaimed, “You are my beloved Son. With you

Full of Hope and Promise

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you well. As we begin a new year together, I hope you have had time to rest and worship and evaluate your plans for the coming year. These days are full of hope and promise. As you prepare for worship this year, I encourage you to look back over the past year and write down three blessings for which you are grateful. Being thankful is the seed you plant when you want more joy in your life. Also, while you’re making a list, write down one thing you’re hoping and

  • Christmas on Peachtree

Nothing Like Christmas Here!

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

Merry Christmas!  As I write these words, we are merely hours away from our Christmas Eve celebration.  The church is buzzing with excitement as members of the flower guild, altar guild, usher teams, hospitality volunteers, children’s choir moms, and pageant helpers all have been making their final preparations for the big day.  The church is at its most beautiful and I am grateful to all who have helped.  There is nothing like the Christmas season at Peachtree Road!

I am looking forward to worshiping with you Sunday as we welcome anew Christ into our lives.  The services are

  • Advent Sanctuary

God’s Gift of Joy

December 15, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this week’s note finds you well. As I write these words, our journey through Advent is quickly coming to a close. Since Christmas Eve falls on a Sunday this year, our time of preparation has been much shorter than normal.

On Sunday morning, we will bring our Advent series “A Christmas Story” to a close. Each week we have focused upon a character from some of our best loved Christmas stories and considered an important spiritual lesson for the season. From Miracle on 34th Street, Susan Walker helped us reflect upon the importance of

Discover Hope

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you are doing well. This Sunday promises to be an exciting day at Peachtree Road and I hope you are planning to be here with your church family.

  • A Christmas Story – on Sunday we will continue our advent series of messages focusing upon hope, peace, and joy. This week we will have the opportunity to meet the character George Bailey from the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The most poignant line of the story for me comes when George laments to his guardian angel Clarence, “I suppose it would have been better
  • The Longest Night

How Long, O Lord?

Yesterday we heard words of inspiration and encouragement from Matt Westmoreland during the worship services as he reflected upon the transformation in children’s learning we are witnessing as a result of our church’s partnership with Hollis STEM Academy: “Hope without truth is fantasy, but truth without hope is failure. It’s only in those moments when you are able to confront truth at its harshest and hope at its most powerful, that you believe dramatic change is possible.”

I thought of those words later in the day when I heard the news reports about a deadly mass shooting in a Texas church.
