For when a crisis suddenly presents itself and you find yourself unprepared. Or when the challenges of life seem to conspire against you and you don’t have enough food in you pantry; or that 18 year old car you’ve held together with duct tape and dental floss finally quits cold; or you can’t afford to fix your leaking roof there are people at Christ Church who might be able to help.


HOGS (Hands of God Serving) meets to serve those who have requested their help every third Saturday from 8 am to noon.

Volunteers get together once a month to clean, paint, haul materials, and perform light plumbing, electrical and carpentry repairs in service to the elderly, single moms and those in need.


The Justice Center is a charitable legal aid ministry serving the needs of no-income, low-income, and even middle-income individuals in need. We are committed to bringing practical help in justice matters. We deal with landlord/tenant situations, contract disputes, custody enforcement, child support issues, fraud, and many other civil issues.


The CARS Ministry aims to resource and serve those without reliable transportation in our community. Our volunteers perform maintenance and repair work on vehicles that have been donated by people in the community and these vehicles are either repaired for donation to a single parent or are sold for parts to repair other vehicles. By utilizing donations and volunteer labor, CARS keeps its operating expenses to a minimum, enabling the ministry to provide reliable vehicles and auto repairs free-of-charge, helping single parents and their families gain independence and opportunity.
If you are interested in receiving help from the CARS ministry please email cars@christchurchil.org.
