Asbury-St. James UMC Giving

Asbury-St. James United Methodist Church in Charleston, SC, is a tithing church. We believe in the power of tithing to change lives – not only the life of the giver but also the lives of those who are blessed by the gift. When we tithe, we are giving back to God a portion of what God has already given to us.


Tithing is an act of faith and obedience that shows our trust in God as our Provider. It is a way of saying “thank you” to God for all that we have been given. And it is an investment in the work of God’s kingdom.


As tithers, we are investing in the future of our church, our community, and our world. We are proclaiming that God is worthy of our best and that we are committed to being good stewards of all that God has entrusted to us.
