Dementia Caregiver Support Group
6:30 pm | Every Third Thursday | Room 206
This group is a gathering of caregivers for those with dementia to explore issues surrounding Alzheimer’s diseases and related dementias. This group provides an opportunity to meet regularly for mutual support and to exchange coping skills with one another. Meetings will also focus on how caregivers can maintain their own health and well-being, and enhance their ability to care for dementia patients. This group can provide moral support and encouragement during a difficult time. No registration is required to attend support meetings. Click here for more information about the Greater Richmond Alzheimer's Association or call the Alzheimer's Association Helpline at 800-272-3900.

Angel Ministry
Pregnancies do not always go as planned. Sometimes they don't even happen at all. You are not alone. Angel ministers, women who have experienced pregnancy-related problems, are ready to provide a caring presence for those who are currently struggling with this difficult time
in their lives. For more information, please contact Kelley Lane, or (804) 359-6041, ext. 121.

Bus Ministry
The bus ministry provides transportation to and from church each Sunday and on special occasions to members and friends who no longer drive. No special driver’s license is required. Serve in rotation with other drivers, starting from Reveille at approximately 9:30 am and returning around 1:00 pm. 

Financial Assistance
This fund, established by donations and memorial gifts, assists members in financial crisis or with special needs. It is also a way to assist Reveille members who cannot afford the total cost of a particular church opportunity. For example, assistance can be offered to those participating in retreats and other programs where a registration fee is charged. Contributions are made to this fund through the Nurture & Congregational Care Ministry, and requests are handled confidentially. 

Funeral Greeters and Receptions
Reveille provides ushers for funeral services and also provides a reception in the welcome center, if requested, so that families in mourning may receive friends and guests. 

Home Visitation
This ministry provides Reveille’s older adults with support and companionship through monthly home visits. Volunteers receive appropriate training. Learn how you can get involved

Service of Remembrance
Annual service held each December to help those who have lost loved ones in the past year cope with the holidays. A reception follows the service. The 30–45 minute service is open to everyone.

Stephen Ministry
This one-to-one lay ministry provides those who are hurting with the love and care they need to help support them through a difficult time. Persons may be involved by requesting the confidential help of a Stephen Minister or by serving as a Stephen Minister. To become a Stephen Minister, 50 hours of training must be completed, followed by attendance at monthly supervision meetings. Stephen Ministers have weekly visits with their care receiver.
