Make A Joyful Noise

July 21, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a good week.

Sunday promises to be another great day in worship as we continue our “Summer in the City” services. Julie Schendel will be preaching this week as we continue to focus upon “Summer Psalms.” This Sunday we turn our attention to one of the most-beloved biblical passages of all time — Psalm 100. No doubt you have quoted this psalm of praise on numerous occasions:

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing.

The psalmist encourages us

Blessed is the One

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you have had a good week. Let me begin this note by sharing with you the news that Dr. Spencer Brewer died at home earlier this week. Spencer joined Peachtree Road as a member of the Confirmation Class in 1936, and has been a faithful member for over 80 years. He was a gifted doctor, a vital member of the Timothy Sunday School Class where he led the singing each Sunday, and was one of the most joyful men I have ever known. A memorial service for Spencer will be held this Saturday,

I See the Goodness of the Lord

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

The days of the summer are here, and I know many of you are enjoying time away with loved ones. While you may be away enjoying cooler climates on the weekends, I do want to keep you up with what is taking place at your church.

First, let me take a moment to look ahead. I really am looking forward to Sunday’s worship service. Of course, July means “Summer in the City” here at Peachtree Road. During this month, you are encouraged to dress “comfortably” for worship. Our services are more casual, and lemonade and cookies

A Good Day at Peachtree Road

June 30, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

Last Sunday was a remarkable day here at Peachtree Road, and I am so grateful to all who had a hand in its planning and coordination. The annual “Celebration of Freedom” service is a favorite of many in our congregation, but I thought this year’s was especially meaningful.

I am grateful to Nicole Marane, the Atlanta Brassworks, and the members of the volunteer choir for the wonderful music offered on Sunday. We were delighted to welcome an outstanding number of new members to Peachtree Road, and I hope you will make an effort to get

Too Wonderful!

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. The highlight of the Annual Conference was the ordination of Leslie Watkins on Wednesday night. The length and depth and breadth of our ministry set the

Who We Are

June 9, 2017

Dear Peachtree Road Family,

I hope you are doing well. I want to begin this week’s note by letting you know about the death of one of our oldest members – Georgia Harris. Had she lived one more month, Georgia would have been 102! This saint of the church has finished her race; she has kept the faith; and we are grateful for what she has meant to Peachtree Road. May Georgia rest in peace and rise in glory!

This Sunday, our associate minister Matt Nelson will preach his final sermon here at Peachtree Road at the 8:45 a.m. and
