Prayer Chapel
We have a new space at the church that's designed to help you honor the words from Psalm 46 -- "Be still and know that I am God." Our Prayer Committee has carefully guided the design of our new Prayer Chapel, located on the 3rd floor (room 302), and you're invited to make use of it! The Prayer Chapel is focused on a rough-hewn cross made from reclaimed lumber from our own church property. Kneelers invite you to lower your position as you approach the cross. There are several comfortable seats to pause, spend time, reflect and pray. Gentle music sets a peaceful tone in which to seek -- and encounter -- God's presence. The Prayer Chapel is always open and available for your use. Come and enjoy the setting as you learn to "be still, and know that I am God."

The Prayer Committee of Alpharetta Methodist exists to remind church members that prayer is the most fundamental act of Christians.
