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.

Monthly Collections

View our yearly calendar of collections and see when and where you can donate!

September is Coat Drive Month! Don’t wait until the weather gets cold—children won’t have warm coats in time!

There are three Church banks in the church network that need coats to help people who don’t have the means to purchase coats for their families. Your church can have a coat drive collecting any and all coats with a special focus on the sizes that the three church banks need. It is important that all coats are clean, in good condition, and have working zippers!

Judson Memorial Baptist Church’s Love Clothing Center begins giving out winter coats and accessories in October. Please encourage your congregation to collect clean and repaired winter coats for children and teenagers! Children’s sizes are always in highest demand, but adult sized coats in teen friendly styles are also needed.  

  • Sizes 4T—Adult Judson Memorial Baptist Church, 531 Glendale, Lansing 517-882-5961 (call for hours). Please be sure to leave your church name with your donation.

Pilgrim UCC’s Small Children’s Closet helps families with infants and toddlers, sizes newborn to 3T. They are always in need of warm coats, especially in 2T and 3T sizes!
