So Many Options at Reveille UMC

Spiritual Growth Opportunities for Fall 2011

There will be a number of different Bible studies offered this fall at Reveille. Check this out.


10-week exploration of the basics of Christianity

Thursday evenings, 6:00 to 8:30 p.m.

September 8 through November 17

Through video and small group discussion, this class presents an opportunity to ask questions and explore one's faith. The aim is for participants to grow in their faith. Invite a friend who is new to Christianity to sign up with you.


Disciple 1: Becoming Disciples through Bible Study

34-week survey of the Bible

Sunday evenings, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Begins September 11

Disciple 1 is the foundation course for the entire Disciple series. Over 70% of the Bible is covered in Disciple 1 bringing together the major themes and figures in the Old and New Testament. This study will bring new insights to those who have limited knowledge of the Bible and will also engage those who are familiar with the Bible.

Disciple 4: Under the Tree of Life

32-week class on wisdom literature, John, and Revelation

Sunday evenings, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Begins September 11

Graduates of Disciple 1 are welcome to participate in Disciple 4. Throughout this study there is an emphasis on the Psalms as Israel's hymnbook and prayer book, which leads naturally to an emphasis on worship. Present though the entire study is the sense of living toward completion, toward the climax of the message and the promise extravagantly pictured in The Book of Revelation.


8-week study of the Gospel of Matthew

Sunday evenings, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Begins October 2

This new 8-week Bible study using the new Common English Bible promises to immerse those participating in a fresh understanding of the Gospel of Matthew as they use a translation that is easy to read but also is true to the original texts of the Bible.


Multiple 12-week studies to inspire and equip Christians for daily living

This is a unique series of video and book studies in which participants explore key features of Christian character and then, as a group, apply what has been learned to daily life.

Hospitality: Risking Welcome

Sunday evenings from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Begins September 18, 2011

Hospitality is basic to our lives as Christian disciples. The class will explore what it means to welcome others, as well as what it means to be welcomed. The first six weeks are a time of "come and see" followed by the remaining six weeks known as "go and do."

Carol Uzzle, Minister for Teaching and Learning, will be glad to answer your questions and help you find the group just right for you. E-mail her here or call her at 359-6041, ext. 117.

Child care is provided for all studies.
