Types of Giving

All members of the PRUMC family are given the opportunity and privilege of making an annual pledge.  When you are asked to make a monetary pledge and to participate in the work of this church, please do so knowing that you are giving back a part of God’s gifts to you.
Throughout the year Peachtree Road takes special offerings to fund specific efforts outside of our annual operating budget.  These gifts allow us to enrich our worship experience and to serve others in our community and around the world.
In 1925 a handful of Methodists gathered in the Salter home on Peachtree Road and committed to seek the establishment of a new Methodist congregation in Buckhead.  Perhaps one of the most inspired demonstrations of imagination in PRUMC’s history was when – just 4 years later – the tiny congregation committed to the construction of their first sanctuary in the year 1929.

Peachtree Road United Methodist has had a number of capital projects throughout the years – each one taking a brave step to assure the future growth of our church.  The Imagine campaign, begun in 2012 was launched to pay off existing debt, provide much needed renovations and build a new building for our thriving student ministry.  On November 8, 2015 the Harp Student Center was opened and dedicated to the glory of God.

The John Wesley endowment is a permanent, self-sustaining source of funding. Endowment assets are invested. Each year, a portion of the value of the fund is paid out to support the fund’s purpose, and any earnings in excess of this distribution are used to build the fund’s market value.  In this way, the endowment fund can grow and provide support for its designated purpose in perpetuity.

Bequests received from participants support the PRUMC Endowment Fund, which has a current fair market value of $2.4M.  Requests for grants from the fund can be made for capital, outreach, or seed money for first time projects. The Endowment Committee reviews each grant request and awards grants in February and August of each year.

It is never too early or too late to make the ministry of this church part of your legacy.  For more information, please contact Louisa Mouchet at 404.240.8233 or louisam@prumc.org.   To download a pdf of our endowment application, click here.

Special Offerings

Habitat for Humanity Easter Offering
At the beginning of Lent, we ask the congregation to set aside an offering each day as a part of our Lenten discipline.  On Easter Sunday we bring this offering to give glory to God and celebrate the Resurrection.  This special offering is used to build a house for Atlanta Habitat for Humanity.  Together, we help revitalize and strengthen neighborhoods and move toward ending sub-standard housing.

Wesley Woods Mother’s Day Offering
Each year on Mother’s Day, Peachtree Road UMC contributes to the vital services for the elderly provided by Wesley Woods.  We are proud to be leaders in the tradition of giving to offer safe and supportive living for low-income senior adults throughout Georgia.  By assisting with shelter, healthcare and necessities, elderly residents are given a decent and dignified life.

Summer Camp Scholarship Offering
Each year we have the chance to make a life long impact on a young person today by helping them attend a summer camp at PRUMC.  Our scholarships provide homeless children and youth a chance to have fun and learn at one of our summer sports or crafts camps.  Funds are also used to provide new athletic shoes, casual clothing and swim suits for campers.

Backpack Drive Offering & Event
Every summer PRUMC provides over 2000 backpacks to shelter and low income children in Atlanta.  Each backpack is stocked with brand new school supplies needed for the school year.  Our partner agencies distribute completed packs to children in need for the upcoming school year.

Thanksgiving Turkey Drive
We help provide a low income families with Thanksgiving Dinner each year. $10 provides a turkey and $20 provides an entire Thanksgiving meal.

United Methodist Children’s Home Offering
On Children’s Sunday, PRUMC takes an offering for the children at our United Methodist Children’s Home in Decatur.  The United Methodist Children’s Home provides children who have been neglected or abused with refuge, counseling and support.  Its mission is to help children feel loved, safe and cared for.

Christmas Kindness
Each December we open our Christmas Kindness Shop to the homeless and working poor of Atlanta.  With dignity and joy, families are able to select gifts, small appliances and warm coats.  Guides and helpers take each family through the shop, wrapping and loading stations.  We give away over 10,000 gifts to those in need.

Christmas Eve Offering for Global Missions
On Christmas Eve, we light candles in the midst of a dark world and remember the promise: “Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not overcome it.”  Our Christmas Eve Offering is designated for global missions to provide clean water in Nakuru, Kenya, love and support for children in the Nation of Georgia, and shelter for the people of Central America.  These are communities supported by our church, and we work toward long-term improvement of their health, education and well-being.  As we continue our work of empowering these communities, we see a new light in the eyes of those we are helping to attain a better life.
Music Gifts
As we strengthen our faith through song, music is vital to our worship experience and spiritual journey.  Music Gifts allow Peachtree Road to offer the finest sacred and traditional music during our Festival Sundays, Lent, Advent and every Sunday worship service.  Your gifts support our children, youth and adult choirs and our many guest musicians throughout the year.  Acknowledgements for these gifts are printed in our worship bulletin.
Christmas & Easter Flowers
The Flower Guild has the privilege of decorating our magnificent Sanctuary during the seasons of Christmas and Easter.  The congregation is invited to contribute in honor or memory of loved ones to provide flowers and greenery for these glorious times.  Acknowledgements for these gifts are printed in our worship bulletin at the close of the season.
