Since it's beginning in February of 2016 Christian Services has been able to serve the Lancaster community through our Saving Our Families Together programs. Thanks to the Arras Foundation, formerly known as the J. Marion Sims Foundation, “Saving Our Families Together” focuses on building strong families that provide the love, support, steady source of income, and the moral and social reinforcement children need to thrive. Like Nehemiah who led the Israelites to build the wall around Jerusalem, we believe that each of us has a responsibility to rebuild our part of the wall of our community to insure that the future of our children and grandchildren is secure, safe, and prosperous. Saving Our Families Together is our part of the wall because our mission to strengthen families with children by involving the community will be achieved through the partnership network that will address many of the struggles and issues facing families today.
Our financial skills class gives you the tools to learn how to establish a realistic budget for your life. We focus on multiple aspects of your finances including understanding credit scores, your rights as a consumer, and identity theft protection. There is no fee for this class.

Attending an Anger Management class may feel a little intimidating at first; however, you could learn valuable life skills that help you gain better control over your emotions so anger doesn’t cause problems in your life. Anger management classes are for anyone who wants to get a better handle on their anger. A mother who yells at her kids, a partner who says mean things during arguments, or a supervisor who blows up at his employees are just a few examples of the type of people you might encounter in an anger management class.
Our anger management program provides tools and techniques for dealing with anger in a more constructive and productive way. Sessions include Communication Skills, Values Clarification, Stress Management, Perception and Anger and more.
To receive your Certificate of completion you must complete all twelve hours of instruction by attending four three hour sessions and paying your $60.00 workshop fee.

Christian Services is one of sixteen organizations that received significant funding from the Arras Foundation, formerly known as the J. Marion Sims Foundation for the purpose of improving workplace skills. The goal of the Foundation's Adult Literacy and Basic Skills Initiative is to provide opportunities in Lancaster County, Fort Lawn and Great Falls, South Carolina for adults ages 17 and older to improve basic skills and literacy levels in the areas of health, workplace, citizenship and family literacy. The Foundation has sought to accomplish this goal through a long-term commitment to strategic grant making. It also promotes community collaboration for the development of effective adult literacy programs and services that will make a positive impact on the basic skills and literacy levels of adult residents.
Christian Services is the only Angel Tree location serving Lancaster County. For over 35 years we have had the privilege of providing this service to families in need during the Christmas season. In 2020 we served 206 children in our community. We believe that positive childhood memories are building blocks that endure during a lifetime, and we want to thank all of our local church sponsors and the community for donating. This would not be successful without your yearly participation.
