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. Register now

10 Great Dates: Connecting Faith, Love, and Marriage: Starting September 10

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.

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 Doug Forrester and meets from 4:30-6:00 pm in room 210 beginning October 1. Register
