In March of 2023, the Administrative Board of Peachtree Road United Church voted unanimously to name the church acolyte guild the Betty Lee Kennedy Acolyte Guild. Betty Lee led our acolyte ministry for many years, and we believe this is a fitting way to honor her service.

On Sunday, April 30, at our 11:15 am worship service we honor Betty Lee Kennedy and officially name our acolyte guild the Betty Lee Kennedy Acolyte Guild. We will also celebrate the ministry of acolytes.

At our church, and in our faith tradition, our acolytes have the great privilege and responsibility of bringing the Light of Christ into worship. Their sacred tradition of carrying illuminated candles into the worship space signals Jesus’ presence in our worshiping community.

We thank all acolytes and acolyte captains – past and present – for their service to Peachtree Road UMC. Your work honors God each time we gather in this space.
