Support Your Church By Giving CHEERFULLY
2 Corinthians 9:7 "Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver."
If you are a regular attender (that includes members) of The Tabernacle looking to give cheerfully - this page is for you.
For regular attenders committed to The Tabernacle, giving cheerfully and sacrificially of our finances is part of how we worship. Because everything we have is really God's to begin with, we see giving as an opportunity to be good stewards of what God has given us.
Our work is an effort to serve our God in all things, and one of the primary ways we serve God is by cheerfully giving God our "firs fruits." We call on our members to give, not by meeting some petty, obligatory percentage, but by digging deep and sacrificing for the sake of the gospel because Jesus sacrificed for us, and all we have is His anyway.
We thank those who have helped us meet these needs and pray that those coming and remaining would join in faithful, consistent, generous, godly giving.

Charitable Donations Through Your IRA
The IRA Charitable Rollover allows individuals age 70½ and older to make direct transfers totaling up to $100,000 per year to The Tabernacle, without having to count the transfers as income for federal income tax purposes.
Who qualifies? Individuals who are age 70½ or older at the time of the contribution (you have to wait until your actual 70½th birthday to make the transfer).
How much can I transfer? $100,000 each year.
From what accounts can I make transfers? Transfers must come from your IRAs directly to The Tabernacle. If you have retirement assets in a 401(k), 403(b) etc., you must first roll those funds into an IRA, and then you can direct the IRA provider to transfer the funds from the IRA directly to The Tabernacle.
What are the tax implications to me?
Federal – The transfer to The Tabernacle is not recognized as income, provided it goes directly from the IRA provider to us. The Transfer does not affect the standard deduction
State – None, Florida has no income tax
Does this transfer qualify as my minimum required distribution? Yes, once you reach age 70½, you are required to take minimum distributions from your retirement plans each year, according to a federal formula. IRA charitable rollovers count towards your minimum required distributions for the year.
Contact your IRA plan provider to learn their procedures.
