Connectional Giving

Reveille UMC

Connectional Giving

Connectional giving—all of us giving together—allows United Methodists to do together what we cannot do alone.  

We give to generously participate in God’s work and share all that God has given to us. In addition to the gifts you make to Reveille United Methodist Church, second-mile giving opportunities allow you to extend the reach of your generosity to Richmond, to Virginia, and to the world. 

Special Sundays
When you give on Special Sundays, you enable vital ministries that change the world, one life at a time. Together, United Methodists do remarkable ministry around the world. We care for survivors recovering from earthquakes and storms; we invest, long term, in vulnerable communities; we implement the most effective solutions to diseases like malaria; we equip the next generation to lead the church and society. In all of this, we share the good news of Jesus Christ.

The six special Sundays of The United Methodist Church are: Human Relations Day, UMCOR Sunday (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing), Native American Ministries Sunday, Peace with Justice Sunday, World Communion Sunday, and United Methodist Student Day.
Additional Giving Needs
Everyone can support the vital ministries they care about. In addition to the six offerings requested by The United Methodist Church, Reveille participates in the following offerings:

Samaritan Program
The Samaritan Program of Pinnacle Living (formerly Virginia United Methodist Homes) provides financial assistance to residents who can no longer afford the full cost of their care. Benevolent assistance has been given in these communities since 1948. The Samaritan Fund offering is received in United Methodist churches annually from Mother's Day through Father's Day. Learn more

Virginia United Methodist Annual Conference Offering
This offering supports United Methodist projects in Virginia and around the world. Reveille receives this offering each year on the first two Sundays of June.

United Methodist Family Services (UMFS), December
UMFS is a nonprofit agency that provides a comprehensive array of programs to meet the needs of high-risk children and parents to enable them to overcome challenging circumstances and succeed. A national leader in helping children, UMFS also proactively identifies unmet social service needs throughout Virginia and develops appropriate partnerships to address them. Reveille typically receives an offering for UMFS in December. Learn more

Support Hurricane Harvey
Relief Efforts

Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

The current flooding in Texas from hurricane Harvey has been called one of the worst natural disasters in the state's history. The recovery process will be very long and involved.

The good news is that the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) is already making preparations to help, but they need you. Those who wish to support the work of UMCOR as it responds to this and other disasters in the US are encouraged to give to UMCOR’s US Disaster Response Advance #901670 by clicking here.

Remember that 100% of your gift goes to help people in need, as UMCOR's administrative costs are covered each March by a special offering United Methodist churches receive called "UMCOR Sunday" (formerly "One Great Hour of Sharing").

Thank you for your continued generosity.

Grace and peace,
Doug
