At Metropolitan AME Church in Cumberland, Maryland, we are continuously striving to --
"Perform up to God's Expectations, Time, Talents, and Offering."
What does God expect from me?
- Micah 6: 7-8 "Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten thousand rivers of oil? Shall I give my firstborn for my transgression, the fruit of my body for the sin of my soul? 8 He has told you, O' man, what is good – and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justice and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?
How do I use my time to glorify the Lord?
- Ephesians 5:15-16: See then that you walk carefully, not as fools, but as wise men, making the most of the time because the days are evil.
How do I use my God-given talents to the fullest extent?
- I Timothy 4:14: Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given to you by prophecy, with the laying on of hands by the elders.
How do I give unto the Lord, as he has given unto me?
- Luke 6:38: Give, and it will be given to you: Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will men give unto you. For with the measure you use, it will be measured unto you.
