Life of the Congregation

This past January, you helped us pack more than 200,000 seed envelopes to go to our missions partner in Malawi. The seeds have now made their way across the ocean, through customs in Dar es Salaam, and into the hands of our partner in Malawi!

Over the next few months these seed packets will be distributed to children in our sponsorship program and taken to their villages to be planted.

This is another example of how God is using the more than 4,000 households of Peachtree to be a part of His mission in Atlanta and around the world by Joining Christ daily in the restoration of all things. To learn more about Peachtree’s mission, visit us at:

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
