The Garth at Reveille
The garth at Reveille was a part of the church's 1951 master building plan, but was only completed and dedicated in 1994. "Garth" is an Old English word for "an enclosed yard." In the more modern usage it describes a cloistered garden of tranquility and beauty.
The garth is a living symbol representing all that is good in the life we share and celebrate as Christians. The joys of baptism, marriage, fellowship, and resurrection are expressed here. It is a spiritual backdrop for worship, meditation, and communion. Everyone is encouraged to explore the three garden areas of the garth: the garden of covenant, the garden of meditation, and the garden of celebration.
- The Garden of Covenant: The garden of the covenant, located near the double-door entry from the inside corridor, provides a lovely sanctuary for refreshments and fellowship before and after worship services, as well as a meeting place for small groups and other receptions.
- The Garden of Celebration: The garden of celebration is located near the driveway entrance to the garth. It is designed as an outdoor meeting space for larger groups. This area includes a raised dais for worship leaders or performers and adequate grassy space for the placement of up to 100 chairs.
- The Garden of Meditation: The garden of meditation, located in the middle of the garth, is a consecrated burial area for Reveille members and their families who select cremation. The burial policy is formulated by the garth administrative committee and the senior pastor.
