How you can help the ministries of Turner Chapel AME?
Pray for those who are injured, sick and/or have experienced loss. Pray for our community leaders. Pray for those who are our first responders who have seen unspeakable things and are still working tirelessly for our community. Pray for our church to continue to be strong and fulfill the work that God has placed us for in this location.
It is our honor to serve this community in the Spirit of Christ. We are encouraging you to also find a place in your community to pray and serve. We have many opportunities for you to serve at Turner Chapel AME, so get involved. If not here, find a place to serve near.
Your financial support of Turner Chapel AME financially during this season is greatly appreciated. Your tithes, offerings and donations are used to advance the ministries at the church and help the community in which we are located and serve. Thank you for your generosity.
The Bible says in Matthew 6:24 that the top competitor for our commitment to Jesus is money. Giving allows us to demonstrate that He is more important to us than material things. Not having cash or check on hand doesn’t have to hold you back from giving. You can be obedient today by giving online. There is no organization with more potential to change the world than the local church!
What is Tithing?
GENEROSITY changes lives – ours and the people to whom we give. At Turner Chapel AME, taking action on your generosity is simple. Tithing is our starting place in giving. The Bible teaches us about a baseline standard for giving: the tithe (a word that literally means a “tenth”). When we give the first 10% of our income through the local church, we put God first in our lives. Tithing is an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for others.
God also encourages us to give offerings beyond our tithe to specific projects at our local church and to other organizations and causes that we personally believe in.
What is an Offering?
Any amount above 10% of your earnings is considered an offering to God. This type of giving is over and above the tithe and should be done with cheerfulness.
