“Sharing Christ’s love by providing basic needs and a fresh start”

Welcome to our website!



We hope that you will be inspired by the work God is doing through all of us who are staff and volunteers as we help the poor of Abilene. Our mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ by providing basic needs and a fresh start. We treat every person with dignity and compassion just as Christ does for us. Not only do we provide clothing, food and other items at no cost, we also give folks opportunities to give back in some way -- either through working 12 hours of volunteer work in exchange for one week's rent, giving back to the community after receiving utility assistance or providing canned food for our pantry as a way to say thank you for new school clothing for their children.

May the photos and descriptions illustrate ways we share God’s love. It is our heartfelt desire that people know that we care for them and that they know God cares for them and has not forgotten them. We invite you to join us as partners in this mission through volunteer service or with financial gifts.

Because of Christ and His indescribable gift,
Jim Clark, Director


Christian Service Center

This ministry is privileged to show the love of Jesus each weekday to those who come to us with a variety of need. Whether it’s clothing, food, household items, school supplies, a Bible or spiritual counsel and prayer -- we do all we can to let people know that God loves them and hasn’t forgotten them.
