WELCOME TO PEACHTREE ROAD
All are welcome to join in the worship of God and the fellowship of this church family. We are fortunate to be able to offer several Sunday experiences – each worshipful and engaging in their own way. Come see where you may find God in this place. Though we worship communally, our services can also help us find the sacred place of peace and gratitude within ourselves. Visit us in person and enjoy the people and ministries that make us who we are. You can find descriptions of each service that we offer further down on this page.

What to Expect
Our traditional and contemporary services (8:45 am & 11:15 am) are 60 minutes and begin with a friendly time of greeting clergy, staff and fellow-worshipers. If you would prefer to be in silent prayer or thought at this time, that will be respected.
Music will signal the beginning of the worship service. Our traditional services feature organ and choir, and our contemporary service features a full band. You can follow the order of worship for each service in a bulletin provided by ushers, or by viewing digital screens in The Road worship space.
Please wear whatever you like to church. We tend to wear “Sunday best” in our sanctuary services but keep it casual for alternative. There is no requirement for either, but we want you to know what to expect so you feel comfortable in your surroundings.
There are common areas outside of each worship space and bathrooms are located down the halls. If you need a private space for nursing or to make a phone call, our volunteers can guide you to a separate area.
Traditional Worship Services
Sundays, 8:45 & 11:15 am, Sanctuary
Our Sunday morning worship in the Sanctuary is rich, warm and meaningful. Built upon traditional Christian liturgy, our more formal services combine the sacred elements of scripture, prayer, and hymns led by clergy and choir. Bill Britt delivers a purposeful sermon each Sunday to be considered throughout the week, and Holy Communion is held once a month to remind us of our unity as Christians. Here we gather each week to give our best to glorify God, and we warmly invite you to join us.
Traditional Worship takes place each Sunday.
Chapel Communion Service
Sundays, 9:00 am, Moore Chapel
Chapel communion is a service celebrating the gift of the Eucharist. Each week, in this intimate service, worshipers have the chance to hear the different voices of the PRUMC clergy. Music is led by staff and other guest musicians accompanied by the organ.
The Road Worship Service
Sundays, 11:15 am, Heritage Hall
The Road is an inviting worship experience that blends familiar church elements with an engaging atmosphere. Here you will find approachable fellow-worshipers who enjoy a fresh message, current music and a shared experience. At The Road you can come as you are, when you are able. No matter where you are in your life or your faith, our doors are open to you.
Sundays @ 5
Sundays, 5:00 pm, Moore Chapel
Life can get too busy, but don’t let that define you. Reconnect with your faith, your church and yourself at a comfortable, informal service on Sunday afternoons with inspiring message, music and communion. This is a great time to re-center before heading into a new week.
Mid-Week Prayer Service
Wednesdays, 12:00 – 12:30 pm, Moore Chapel
By mid-week, most of us need a spiritual recharge. Join us for a few moments of reflection and devotion on your Wednesday lunch break to center yourself and realign your faith. To help make time for your spiritual nourishment, we offer to-go meals in Grace Hall after the service.
