Adventist Community Services
If your church disappeared today, would anyone other than the members even notice?
“Our neighbors are not merely our associates and special friends; they are not simply those who belong to our church, or who think as we do. Our neighbors are the whole human family” (Ellen G. White, “The Role of the Church in the Community,” Ellen White Notes, 3Q 2016).
Community Services is God’s invitation to do amazing things with Him. Hard times come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and Adventist Community Services (ACS) is responding to individual needs, developing relationships, and committing to making a difference in people’s lives.
ACS supports community outreach programs by funding development projects that make a major impact in your communities. A washer/dryer serves thousands of homeless to bring dignity and value to their lives. A shelter provides protection and offers hope. A portable shower trailer prepares someone for a job interview. And so much more.
One parent shared, “I had just lost my son Christopher to cancer…. The church couldn’t bring back my son to me, but what they did was they brought my life back to me.”
Jesus said, “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.” Mark 10:45
By supporting ACS, you can make a lasting impact and know that your dollars are going to something that is making a difference in a life.
