Seeing Gray in a World of Black and White by Adam Hamilton: Starting September 20
Everyone agrees that America is polarized, with ever-hardening positions held by people less and less willing to listen to one another. No one agrees on what to do about it. One solution that hasn’t yet been tried, says Adam Hamilton, is for thinking persons of faith to model for the rest of the country a richer, more thoughtful conversation on the political, moral, and religious issues that divide us. Hamilton rejects the easy assumptions and sloppy analysis of black and white thinking, seeking instead the truth that resides on all sides of the issues, and offering a faithful and compassionate way forward. This class will be facilitated by the Women of Spirit in Room 210 on Wednesdays, Sept. 20—Oct. 18, from 10:00-11:30 am.

Defying Gravity by Tom Berlin: Starting October 1
Stuff. And more stuff.  And even more stuff. The next thing you know, we’re pulled into the orbit of materialism! In Defying Gravity, Tom Berlin takes a look at the difference between “want” and “need” and illustrates how possessions can create an unbearable weight on our lives. He shows us how too much stuff affects our ability to serve and thrive, and then he helps us explore what is required to sustain a vibrant life.
This four-week class will be facilitated by Lead Pastor Doug Forrester and meets from 4:30-6:00 pm in room 210 beginning October 1. Please note that adult Sunday school classes will also participate in this study. Register



Ongoing Classes

Reveille Today: Learn more about our church
September 10, 17, and 24
All adults who are discerning membership are asked to attend Reveille Today, a class designed by members to help visitors learn more about our church. 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.  Reveille Today is offered Sunday, September 10, 17, and 24, 4:30-6:30 pm, in Reveille House. 

Disciple II Bible Study: Starting September 10
In Disciple II Bible study, participants study the Bible and theological topics in depth, allowing students to grow in their understanding of the Bible and to enrich their faith and their call to live as disciples of Jesus Christ. This class is the second in the Disciple series and focuses on an in-depth study of Genesis, Exodus, Luke, and Acts. This class will be facilitated by Associate Pastor Stephen Coleman and Minister of Adult Ministries Kelley Lane, for 32 weeks, ending in May, 4:30-6:30 pm, in room 209.

10 Great Dates: Connecting Faith, Love, and Marriage: Starting September 10
While juggling the kids, work, church, and community commitments, are you and your spouse finding time to connect? When was the last time you had an intentional conversation about faith or did a devotional together? To help couples jump-start spiritual connections, four marriage experts have come up with 10 creative date ideas, each centered on a spiritual theme. With the planning taken care of--including flexible suggestions for before, during, and after the date--you and your spouse can simply enjoy the time sharing what's important in life. This class will be facilitated by Doug and Elise Sandler in room 207, 4:30-6:30 pm, Sundays, September 10-November 12.
