Christian Services aims to help churches meet people’s needs with the love of Jesus Christ. Through Christian Services, church members are putting their faith in action and providing help, hope and God’s love to others. They are building caring relationships with those who are struggling, and moving beyond the expressed need to help address the underlying issues that contribute to poverty and hopelessness.
One church alone can’t deal with all the complex issues of poverty. It takes churches working together across denominational lines to meet these multifaceted needs.
Christian Services employs three staff members that are dedicated to creating meaningful connections between the Christian community and those in need.

Help Center Hours:
Monday – Thursday: 9 AM – 3 PM
The Christian Services Help Center is the churches’ Help Center, developed by local churches for local churches. It is the place where the needs of people in our community can be heard. Dedicated church volunteers answer the help line phones, listen compassionately to each caller, verify information and connect them with the appropriate church or community resource.
Through the Help Center, Christian Services also identifies gaps in services and resources in the community. Christian Services help churches develop ministries to “fill in the gaps” not being met by other agencies or organizations.
