Haygood is often referred to as the “living room of the community.” The church is nestled in the heart of the Morningside neighborhood in Atlanta, Georgia. We do our best to lift up the name of Jesus Christ and make disciples of him. In doing so, we seek to be a welcoming community of faith to all people. We especially want to ensure children feel welcome. From our Child Development Center to our weekly children’s programs, we seek to help each child feel nurtured and each parent feel supported. As Jesus reminded his disciples, “Let the children come” (Matthew 19:14).
We are a United Methodist congregation. Our denomination began in England in the 1700’s by John and Charles Wesley. We emphasize the grace of God. We believe God sent Jesus to this world to forgive sinners and redirect our lives. We believe God has a place for you at Haygood. That’s right. There’s a place for you! We hope to help you find it.
