You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.

BAPTISM AT PEACHTREE At Peachtree, we celebrate both infant and believer baptism. For infants, baptism marks the official beginning of the partnership between the church and the family to raise the child as Jesus’ disciple. When a child is baptized, the parents make a profession of faith on behalf of their child. As the parents claim that Jesus is their Lord and Savior, they also make commitments to raise their child to know Jesus Christ. In baptism, a child becomes a part of the church family, but they must one day make their own decision to follow Jesus Christ.

Requirements • The child being baptized must be 18 months of age or younger. • At least one parent must be an active and local member of Peachtree Presbyterian Church. • At least one parent must attend a Baptism Workshop prior to the Baptism Sunday selected (even if prevously attended for another child). To register your child, visit: PeachtreeChurch.org/Baptism

Prayer Ministry Sunday morning flowers may be dedicated in the memory or honor of a loved one or to commemorate a special occasion such as a baptism. For details or to reserve a date, contact Marsha Sims at 404842-3146 or MSims@ PeachtreePres.org.

PeachtreeChurch.org/Prayer

One of the ways in which we are able to live into our mission as a church of joining Christ daily in the restoration of all things is through the act of prayer. Each Sunday, members of our congregation are available to pray with you at the foot of the cross in the Sanctuary. A dedicated team of prayer warriors pray for all of Peachtree’s prayer requests. Groups gather throughout the week to join together to offer God praise and thanksgiving while also lifting up the needs of our church, our community, and the world to the Creator. The Prayer Ministry invites you to join in praying for Peachtree and each other. As Charles Spurgeon said, “We know not what prayer cannot do.”
