Enjoy lively discussion, new perspectives and new insight as you learn and grow with others from your church family. No matter how much or how little you already know of the Bible, spending time studying God’s word can be transformative.  If you are ready to take another step in your personal faith journey, join us this season.

You are invited to be a part of PRUMC’s ongoing commitment to the study of God’s word.  We have different formats for study to accommodate life and schedules.  We would love to help you find which is right for you. Please contact Rev. Elizabeth Byrd at 404.240.8227 or


Stepping Stones
2nd and 4th Thursdays, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm, A201
The class members utilize the Upper Room Disciplines, A Book of Daily Devotionals, to structure the discussions.  We follow a shared leadership model highlighting our faith journeys as it relates to the daily Upper Room offerings. This process allows us not only to discuss the scriptures referenced in the Disciplines, but it also leads us to discuss current and past events that have affected our faith journeys.  This is a friendly, thought-provoking group, and we welcome new class members.
