Our present, and our future
At Peachtree Road, our youth are a vital part of our congregation. They share their gifts with us in so many ways and in turn, we create a safe, trustful, and fun environment to cultivate friendships and faith. As our present and our future, our youth are essential to our church life. All students grades 6 – 12 are invited to be a part of the awesome community that is the Youth Ministry of Peachtree Road. No matter where you are in your journey, there is a place for you here. We learn, worship, serve, rock out and hang out. Come be a part!
Please check back for updates or contact Mary Allred with any questions.
Our Building Blocks for Discipleship
Confirmation is the process for youth to become full members of the church. 6th graders spend the year learning about God, Jesus, and the history of the United Methodist Church. The group will meet every Sunday morning and enjoy a retreat together in October. The group is also open for any youth that are not 6th graders that wish to be confirmed at PRUMC.
Volunteers make the youth ministry at PRUMC happen. We count on our families to look for ways to “plug in” and volunteer. Here are some of the ways you can serve.
Shepherds are the foundation of the youth ministry at PRUMC. Shepherds are adults that love Jesus and love youth and will guide our youth along their discipleship process. Shepherds guide a small group of youth, meeting with them as a group once a week and keeping up with them throughout the year. It is a one-year commitment and our shepherds are also encouraged to join us for special events and retreats.Text
Foundations teachers help teach our Sunday morning gatherings. There are regular teaching opportunities as well as substitute opportunities available.
Prayer & Care Team
This team focuses on the hearts of our youth and families. They commit to praying regularly for youth and families in need. They also focus on surrounding our leaders and volunteers in prayer. The prayer/care team helps to facilitate and host an event per semester to help guide our families through shared cultural pressures (anxiety, social media, adolescent development, etc.).
Our host teams help set up the lobby and lounge on Sunday mornings and Sunday evenings and greet youth as they gather and check in.
This team helps plan special events throughout the year, including Halloween Extravaganza, Christmas Parties, special 1|99 nights and other events.
Our environment team focuses on helping shape our physical environment for worship to follow our teaching themes. Part of the team also focuses throughout the Harp Center so that our space tells our story.
