Upcoming Events

Atlanta Streets Alive
Sunday, July 28, 1-5 p.m.

Once a month during the summer time, Peachtree Street is closed to all automobile traffic and opened up to pedestrians and bicycles for Atlanta Streets Alive. The event opens streets for people by taking cars out of the equation for an afternoon to create a whole new healthy, sustainable and vibrant city street experience. Atlanta Streets Alive is a program inspired by open streets projects all over the world. Bring your bicycle or just your feet, and get ready to explore your community streets in a safer, healthier, more livable way!

The next event is Sunday, July 28, from 1 to 5 p.m. EDT. Since the front doors of Atlanta First UMC are on Peachtree Street, this is a perfect opportunity for community outreach to engage with the city of Atlanta. We will open the doors of the church and offer water bottles and hospitality to those who walk by. Volunteers are needed! Please contact Associate Pastor Chris Rapko (chrisr@atlantafirstumc.org) if you are interested in participating.


Communion in the Community
Mondays, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Location Changes Week-to-Week

Maybe you’ve thought to yourself, “I wish I could have lunch with a pastor. I need to ask them something about Leviticus 3:16.” Maybe you haven’t been able to make it into Sunday worship in quite a while, but you’d like to take communion on your lunch break. Do we have the opportunity for you! Atlanta First UMC will have community office hours weekly on Mondays from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m. It’s your opportunity to have an “Ask Me Anything” with one of our pastors, to share a quick bite before you have to run back from lunch, and communion will be available if you would like it.

Look for Pastor Chris this week: he’ll be the bald guy with the laptop sticker that says “I’m a Pastor. Want to Chat?” We will be at Truist Plaza Food Court, 303 Peachtree Center Ave., right down the street from Atlanta First.
