This month, we have had opportunities to consider how we have been blessed and how we can be a blessing to others.  Many members of our church family have shared their thoughts and feelings about Peachtree Road and we hope you take a moment to watch or read their heartfelt testimonies here.  This page will be updated with new inspiration each week!

For many, the Dogwood Shop at PRUMC is a beautiful store full of thoughtful gifts, art, clothes, and books, where you can feel good about spending your money as all the proceeds support our church’s Global Missions.  For me, it is so much more. The Dogwood is a place of refuge and normalcy during the […]

Eighteen years ago, Peachtree Road truly changed my life and gave me a mission. In 2003, I was sitting at my kitchen table when a friend shared photos from her PRUMC mission trip to the country of Georgia (part of the former Soviet Union).  Seeing the faces of the beautiful children of Georgia, and understanding […]

I’m not, by nature, a morning person.  In fact, in high school I once slept past 1:00 pm on a Saturday.  Truth is, it was more than once.  A lot more.  Didn’t make my mom very happy.  It just seemed to me that nothing fun happened before noon on a Saturday, so why get up? […]

“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” 2 Corinthians 9:8.  Betsy and David Glass share about their faith “home base” that is Peachtree Road. The weekly recharge they get here keeps them going and growing!

How has the church blessed you? We have many blessings over the past 20 years that are directly related to PRUMC.  The very first is simply its existence and reputation.  I had moved back to the US from overseas and it was one of the churches I visited when I was in town.  After Elizabeth [...]

When I was in the hospital for 13 days, fighting for my life with the Delta variant of COVID19 and pneumonia, members of my Blazers Sunday School class immediately started texting and calling me on my phone and my husband's phone.  They would be praying for us and wanted to know what else they could [...]

I have struggled with depression since I turned 70 years old.  One Lamb has given me the confidence to share my story  with others! I pray that in sharing my story, it will lead others to reach out for help that is available in One Lamb’s Friend to Friend ministry.  – Gayle Cummings

On Wednesday morning each week, when a group of men from Peachtree Road begin their weekly Bible hour wading into scripture with Geoff Beakley, a vivid memory always comes to mind.  Many years ago, as a young person in the church, summer often brought adventure on the Chattahoochee.  Our youth director at the time, a [...]

“Peachtree Road had our back before anyone else did and has been doing the hard work with us to support at risk kids in our city.” – Sgt. Jones, Police Athletic League. For close to 20 years, Peachtree Road has supported the Atlanta Police Athletic League in multiple ways: financial gifts, food and sports equipment [...]

Catherine Leonard

Being part of Young Professionals (YP) at PRUMC has been an incredible experience over my past four years in Atlanta.  Moving to a city where I didn't know anyone, I knew that I would be able to find a strong community within a church.  After a quick Google search, I landed at Peachtree Road. YP [...]

“All things are possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23 (TLV) James Jordan shares the story of his journey and his love of Peachtree Road. When we invest in people, we open wide the doors of God’s kingdom.

I am blessed to be a member of our church’s Prayer Ministry.  I know that it sometimes can be daunting for an individual to ask for prayers for themselves or others and to trust that our prayer ministry will be praying for them.  Prayer is a powerful way to care for each other.  Our prayer [...]

Martha Tate

Over the past 40 years PRUMC has been my church home. In her I have found a safe and sacred space for my spiritual development (questions and all), worship, and fellowship. The One Lamb Initiative now integrates two great passions of my life, psychological and spiritual wellbeing and growth. I am grateful to be nurtured [...]

I was raised in a Catholic family where we went to mass “most of the time”. I got my driver’s license and was able to attend alone or with my siblings. My mom requested I bring the weekly bulletin back home as “proof” of my attendance. I would walk in, take a bulletin and walk right back out. I proceeded to drive around to kill time for an hour and proudly present it to my mom of said “proof” I attended mass.

“And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20.  Jason and Abby Cox share how Peachtree Road helps their family engage in their faith and church community through all ages and stages.
