• A Just Cause Explained.

    The more one forgets himself - by giving himself to a cause to serve or another person to love - the more human he is.

    By the Church. For our Community.

    A Just Cause lies at the intersection of fundraiser and fellowship. Where philanthropy meets the fairway. An opportunity for our Church and community to struggle together as one – for 18 holes – with a shared goal of making a substantial difference in the lives of a population in need.

     

    A Just Cause: The PRUMC Invitational is the relaunch of Peachtree Road United Methodist’s annual golf tournament. It’s intentionally a mission-driven gathering, proceeds from which will be awarded to causes that may be local, regional, or worldwide in nature but will always be dynamic and ever-changing. Fluid enough to meet the annual needs of our Church, our members, and most importantly those around us we hope to inspire.

     

    We sincerely look forward to growing this annual Autumn event with you and invite you to join us for the inaugural, A Just Cause: The PRUMC Invitational.
     

     

  • 2017's Just Cause: Our Westside Story

    Proceeds from A Just Cause: The PRUMC Invitational will benefit PRUMC's Westside Revitalization Project

    The Road to Change

    This effort comes from a shared interest for the citizens of Vine City, English Avenue and Castlebury Hill. Over the decades, these areas have become increasingly isolated from opportunity. The once-middle-class neighborhoods have fallen victim to drugs, crime, attrition and unemployment, and a cycle of generational poverty has set in. PRUMC has been able to do some good through our partnerships with City of Refuge and Feed My Lambs, and now we can do more.

     

    The goal of the Westside revitalization is to bring skills and training to the potential that each Westside resident has as a child of God. This idea was spearheaded by the Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation, The Westside Future Fund led by Mayor Kasim Reed, and the Chick-fil-A Foundation led by Dan Cathy and Rodney Bullard, to assure that as the new Falcons Stadium rises up, the surrounding neighborhoods do as well.

    Building Towards the Future

    This long-term commitment will begin a new chapter for residents of the Westside. The neighborhoods will have access to a new Pre-K – 8th STEM Academy, Habitat for Humanity homes, police-in-residence, a Beltline extension, a new Chick-fil-A restaurant and much more. We are proud to be part of a collaborative effort that reminds us what it is to be a good neighbor in our great city. And we invite you to join us where “hope meets opportunity.”

     

    The new STEM school, the Hollis Innovation Academy, is named for Michael R. Hollis, an African American entrepreneur who graduated from Washington High School on the Westside. When the academy opens, it will serve grades Pre-K through 5th, and grow one grade each year until it becomes Pre-K though 8th.

     

    The Hollis Innovation Academy will be led by Dr. Diamond Jack, who brings 14 years of experience in urban education to the new STEM school.
