Outreach to others is one of the most vital components of our faith. We are passionate about making our communities a better place for all. By serving others, we feel the transformative power of our beliefs and see the positive change that it brings to the world. As we continue our work of empowering people and building sustainable programs, we see a light and a renewed resolution in those we touch. The greatest things happen when we listen to God’s call, open our hearts wide, and serve.
The PRUMC Lenten Offering
Finding Christ’s Light – in all of us
We at Peachtree Road have the privilege of helping build a strong local community. Our partners know they can count on us – whether helping those in crisis or creating long-term solutions, PRUMC is on the scene. When those in need are supported, they can reach their potential, give back to the community, and create a sustainable cycle of hope. By loving our neighbors we are building a better Atlanta and finding Christ’s light within ourselves.

2023 Mother’s Day Offering
For nearly 50 years, churches of The North Georgia Conference of The United Methodist Church have received the Mother’s Day Offering for Wesley Woods. This generous support funds financial assistance for meals and housing to residents who have the gift of a long life but may have outlived their resources. In addition, the Mother’s Day Offering also supports On-site chaplains and an innovative wellness program.
Habitat for Humanity
PRUMC and Habitat believe that every person should have access to a decent, safe and affordable place to live. Because of that belief, we team up each year to build homes for hard-working families.
Our strong partnership with Habitat is founded on its mission of sustainability. Each recipient of a Habitat Home works by our side to build the home. They also attend required homeownership education classes on maintenance, budgeting, and more. Because of this type of “hand up” outreach, we are building better communities that last.
This is a fun and rewarding volunteer opportunity that builds homes, communities, and hope.
The Season of Service
40 days of helping others in our community
Our annual Season of Service is 40 days of helping others in our community. This Lent, let God know you are listening and ready to serve according to the Lord’s will. Invest your time in someone else’s life and see God in the faces of those you help. You will enrich your Lenten journey and understand your faith in a new way.
Harp’s Christmas Kindness
Harp’s Christmas Kindness brings the joy of the season to the working poor and homeless families of Atlanta. At our unique Christmas shop, families who qualify can select gifts at no cost to them. The church provides a selection of toys and coats for parents to take home to their children, and a little something for themselves, such as cookware or a small appliance. This ministry gives peace, hope and love to those who may have lost it. Harp’s Christmas Kindness is only possible through your generous donations.
The Peachtree Road Local Outreach ministry proudly partners with MARTA to provide transportation to our homeless and working poor striving to become contributing members of our community.
