giving & Serving

By serving our neighbors, we can show the love of Christ to others in tangible ways. Our church members volunteer their time in countless ways inside the church, at school and work, and throughout the Cape Girardeau community and beyond. How can you use your time and gifts to love others and glorify God? Several opportunities are listed below. If you are gifted in ways not listed, please let us know how we can help you be a blessing to others.


How we manage the resources God has given says a lot about our grasp of His plan for us.  True worship is about our response to all that God has done for us.  At The Chapel, we view supporting the local church financially as part of that response; giving is worship.  Managing our time, talents and resources well so that we can experience the abundance of a relationship with God through the relationships we have in a local body is what stewardship is about.


Through online giving, you can make a one time gift or schedule recurring contributions. Giving is processed through Planning Center Giving (via Stripe).
