Youth Website

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!

Serve a Meal at SafeHouse Outreach
March 17th, 5:00 – 7:30pm

We’re so excited to partner with SafeHouse Outreach again to serve dinner on Wednesday, March 17th and we need your help! SafeHouse serves their Atlanta neighbors by addressing barriers they face while experiencing homelessness. A good, hot meal is often one of those barriers. Meet us at SafeHouse (89 Ellis St NE, Atlanta, GA 30303) at 5pm until 7:30pm. We’ll get to lead a brief worship service for folks who come and then distribute a meal. Plus, it’s a great way to earn service hours!

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
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
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.).

Host Teams
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.

Event Planning
This team helps plan special events throughout the year, including Halloween Extravaganza, Christmas Parties, special 1|99 nights and other events.

Environment Team
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.
