Worship Service: 11 am | Parade: noon | Mediterranean Meal: 12:30 pm
Our Palm Sunday celebration begins at the 11 am service. Members of Peachtree, in full costume, will portray the roles of Jesus and the Disciples. At the conclusion of the service, children and adults will line up on both sides of Spring Street shouting “Hosanna” and waving palm branches as Jesus, the disciples and a live donkey process down the street. This colorful celebration is a beloved Peachtree tradition. Following the parade, join us for a Mediterranean lunch.
Dinner: 6 pm | Lecture: 7 pm
Join us for a talk by the Temple’s Rabbi Peter Berg on Passover. Rabbi Berg is the senior Rabbi at the historic Temple across the street from Peachtree Christian.

Dinner: 6 pm | Worship Service: 7 pm
Enjoy a light dinner in Burns Hall followed by worship in the Sanctuary. This meaningful service, centered around the Lord’s Supper, includes prayer, music and Scripture readings.
Stations of the Cross: 11 am | Worship Service: noon
This somber and meditative service focuses on the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. At the close of this moving service the cross is veiled in black, the Sanctuary is darkened, and worshippers exit in reflective silence as we await the celebration of the resurrection.
Don’t miss this opportunity to share in the blessing of praying for the requests of your faith community. Once you take part in this very moving opportunity, you will always look forward to these vigils. Our goal is for everyone who is part of this church to pray in the chapel for 30 minutes during the vigil.
Worship Services: 9 and 11 am | Children’s Activities: all morning
Celebrate the most significant day in the Christian year in the beauty of our Sanctuary. The service begins with the Sanctuary dark and the cross still veiled from Good Friday, but the mood quickly changes with the proclamation “He is Risen!”. With trumpets and banners and Holy hymns of praise, the truth of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is once again realized at Peachtree Christian Church during this magnificent celebration.
All children are invited to come to Stew Wood Hall between 9 am and noon to participate in fun activities, including photos with baby chicks, crafts and snacks.
Come share in a Christian Women’s Fellowship tradition as we celebrate the wonderful women and girls in your life at our annual spring gathering focused on women.

Music will be provided by Mr. Daniel Solberg and Octave.
