Get Involved

Christian Services works to connect those in need with church volunteers who are dedicated to helping. Whether it be through a church, through outside support or just a listening ear, Christian Services aims to spread hope throughout the community.

March is Personal Needs for Tithe (The Second Saturday Store)

What a joy it is for children to help other children! Cassandra, a five year old, was so excited to tell her mom that they were collecting their Sunday School offerings for Christian Services to give to the church that helps families with things like soap and toilet paper. Cassandra thought it was great that she could help other children, just as she had seen her mom do with Christian Services. You can give the children (and adults!) in your church the same experience of helping others and sharing God’s blessings!

Families and individuals in Restoration Ministry Programs and Sparrow’s Nest earn vouchers by participating in the classes and working to make their lives better by learning God’s plan. They use these vouchers to purchase personal need items. The vouchers are intended to be used so that they can get what they need without putting their tight budgets in jeopardy. In addition, the concept of earning to provide for their needs is reinforced. Tithe Missionary Baptist Church operates the Second Saturday Store for those in Restoration Ministry programs.
