Ongoing Classes
Disciple I
Starts September 11
This 34-week 
overview of the entire Bible gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. Disciple draws upon the work of scholars, the personal Bible reading and study of the participant, and dynamic group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible. Facilitated by Steve Holdych and John Salmon on Sundays, 4:30-6:30 pm, starting September 11, in room 210.

Beatitudes from the Backside by J. Ellsworth Kalas
Starting April 19 | 10:00 am | Room 210
Using his method of approaching Bible passages from an unusual angle or a unique starting point, J. Ellsworth Kalas presents new insight into the beatitudes, Jesus’ blessings from the Sermon on the Mount. The book examines the beatitudes, and Jesus’ view that happiness is not something we get by pursuing it. Indeed, according to Kalas, if we put ourselves into bondage to such things as poverty of spirit, purity of heart, and a readiness for persecution, then we will be happy. Join the Women of Spirit in this study, Wednesdays, starting April 12 at 10:00 am in room 210.

April 19-June 7 | 10:00 am | Room 209

Reveille Today

Reveille Today consists of three sessions over three weeks. These sessions focus on getting to know The United Methodist Church and the congregation at Reveille so you can understand its ministries and the opportunities offered for worship, discipleship, and service. The class also will help you discern your individual spiritual gifts so you can begin thinking about how you can best serve God and humanity in the church and in the world. If, after completing Reveille Today, you feel that God is calling you to join more fully into the life of the church at Reveille, you will have the opportunity to join the congregation on New Member Sunday. Classes are April 23, 30, and May 7 at 4:30 pm in the Reveille House.
