Outreach

Reveille UMC
At Reveille UMC, we are committed to using our gifts to make a difference in God’s world. Our members and friends actively participate in service to the Richmond community and beyond, in a variety of outreach activities throughout the year. Everyone can find an outreach opportunity that matches their time, their talents, and their gifts, making a transformative difference in the lives of everyone involved. 

Financial Support
Reveille provides financial support to various agencies throughout the year. The primary opportunity for providing this support is through seasonal special giving during Advent and Lent. In addition, communion offerings each month go to help those in the community in need of assistance with their living expenses due to a life crisis.

Friends of the Homeless
Richmond Friends of the Homeless is a private, nonprofit association devoted to making a difference in the lives of the less advantaged. More than 1,500 meals are served each week at two locations, one south of Richmond and one in downtown. Reveille serves a hot midday meal and provides 160 bagged lunches for FOH each month.

Westview on the James Camperships  
Our Westview on the James ministry gives under-resourced children the opportunity to experience a loving camp community in God’s great outdoors at Westview on the James summer camp. In 2018, Reveille sponsored 24 children from Swansboro Elementary School.  Children are selected by their teachers to receive a campership based on good citizenship at school. With the help of Ellen Ficker, the Community In Schools representative at Swansboro Elementary, Reveille members assist children and families in preparing for the experience and by providing transportation to and from this amazing United Methodist camp. To get involved, contact Claire Kaugars or Linda Gill.
