Racial Reconciliation

At Peachtree Road, we feel there is always something to learn, a better way to understand, and another direction to grow. As the largest city in Georgia, Atlanta is a metropolis filled with life and diversity. Let’s explore all the opportunity for growth our city has to offer. There are infinite perspectives – and experiencing them is another way to know all God’s people and plans.

Christians for Racial Unity

Peachtree Road UMC has joined forces with Cascade UMC to build a bridge across the racial divides of our city. This journey will take us to a deeper understanding of extended faith family, our community and ourselves. Our time of discovery together includes conversations, fellowship, study and outreach. This initiative began as a Lenten emphasis in 2019 led by Rev. Kevin R. Murriel of Cascade UMC and Rev. Bill Britt of Peachtree Road UMC. Facilitators included Bishop Woodie White, Bishop Sue Haupert Johnson, and Rev. Carolyn Stephens.

10 Day Equity Challenge
We invite and challenge our members to read an article, listen to a dialogue or watch a short clip by a person of color or on race relations. This is an opportunity to be followers of Jesus Christ who show and reflect the love of God to our brothers and sisters in Christ.
