Through the Life and Love of Jesus Christ

June 22, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you are having a good summer. Many of you are enjoying time away from the city on the weekends, but I do want to keep you up with news from your church family.

This Sunday is our annual Celebration of Freedom Sunday. Once again we will be singing patriotic hymns, hearing inspirational music from our choir, and honoring our veterans. For many, that moment in the service when the veterans march down the aisle to the expressed appreciation of our congregation is one of the highlights of the year at Peachtree Road. I cannot

Remember, Give Thanks, and Rejoice!

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you doing well. The North Georgia Conference came to a close yesterday afternoon, and it was a good week of renewing acquaintances with friends and colleagues, worshiping with United Methodists from across the state, and conducting the business of the church. Our church was well represented, and I once again came to the realization of just how blessed we are here at Peachtree Road.

You would have been so proud of our chancel choir as it offered the music for the Service of Remembrance on Wednesday afternoon. It was a privilege and a

Be at Peace

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you are doing well. Last week we celebrated Founder’s Day here at Peachtree Road. It was a good day as we gave thanks for 93 years of ministry and reminded ourselves to focus upon the basics of ministry – “keeping first things first” is how I worded it. At the close of my sermon, I offered some words about the future of the church that I want to share with you at the end of this note.

This week in worship we will be talking about family, and I hope you will

Remind Us Who We Are

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you well as we begin the month of June. Wendie and I have just returned from several days at the beach. It was good to be away, but I really am looking forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. This week we are celebrating Founder’s Day here at Peachtree Road.

On June 7, 1925, the first public worship service of Peachtree Road Methodist Church was held in a partially completed chapel that had a roof and floor but no walls. (Even from its founding, Peachtree Road has been a church without

The Spirit Continues

May 25, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope this note finds you well. You may not have been paying attention, but yesterday was an important date in the history of the Methodist movement. On May 24, 1738, John Wesley experienced his “Aldersgate Street” experience and felt his heart “strangely warmed.” He came to understand this moment of inspiration as that time in his life when the Holy Spirit came upon him fully and gave him the courage to live boldly for Christ. That’s what we talked about last week as we celebrated Pentecost. Just as the Holy Spirit came upon the

Breathe In God’s Grace

May 18, 2018

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you are doing well. I know many of you were present last Sunday as we celebrated Mother’s Day here at Peachtree Road. If you were not here, I encourage you to go to the church website to hear Mr. Joe Giordano, a resident of the Wesley Woods retirement community, share how Wesley Woods plays a vital role in the quality of his life. His heartfelt words of gratitude touched us all. Later in the service, we received an offering to benefit the benevolent fund of this ministry as they provide financial assistance
