The Doves of Peachtree Road

Sponsorships now available

In November of this year, Peachtree Road will present a once-in-a-lifetime experience to commemorate our centennial. Thousands of origami doves will ascend through the sacred space of our sanctuary – starting from the back balcony, soaring through the nave, and rising up through the cupola.

Peachtree Road UMC is privileged to be the third location in the United States to host a Soaring Doves exhibit, joining the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, and Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, CA. We will be the seventh space worldwide to present a “flying” origami dove installation of this scale and are grateful for the opportunity to share this beautiful and meaningful work.

The doves will fly from November 2024 through June 2025, and you may sponsor a dove in honor or memory of someone special.  (Scroll down for sponsorship details.)  We look forward to sharing this incredible work of art with our congregation and community.
