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.
—Wynelle Stevens is Assistant Director at Adventist Community Services.

Pioneer Member Publishes Children's Science Book

Pioneer member, and now author, Joseth Howell, is excited to announce the release of her new children's science book, Water Wonderful World that would make a great experience gift for the holidays and beyond. Water Wonderful World is a beautifully designed heartwarming children’s nonfiction science book that will captivate young readers, parents, and teachers. Filled with lots of interesting facts about water from land and sea to the underground and air, colorful photographs, and wrapped in poetic flair to make science more appealing, it is poised to set young minds buzzing, and inspire them to appreciate the world all around. Children will learn about water conservation, the water cycle, water states, chemical composition of water, tides, water habitats and so much more. Also contained within its pages are fun-filled hands-on activities of water games, experiments, and art that kids and their families can enjoy together further strengthening family bonds and getting them exciting about STEM; and review
questions at the end of each chapter that parents and teachers can use to reinforce comprehension and mastery of concepts learned. Readers will also learn interesting facts about the continent where they live while discovering amazing facts about other continents too.

Enticing pictures and text a child can relate to makes Water Wonderful World a great read-aloud for the new reader and the perfect read-aloud book for all children. Available on Amazon and barnesandnoble.com.

Lake Union Conference's Our United Cry Prayer Conference

On March 11-12 Lake Union Conference will be having an in person Prayer Conference event at the Embassy Suites in Plainfield, Indiana. The Our United Cry’s theme for this year’s Conference comes from John 17, “One With God, One with each other. As a Lake Union Conference family we need to come together in prayer especially in such a time that we are in right now. As a Union we need to come and together seek for the Holy Spirit. We will also be praying for the upcoming General Conference Session the following summer. We want every church in this great Lake Union to be represented in this conference. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

Andrews Academy Invites You to the Feast of Lights

Update: Andrews Academy will be presenting the 48th annual Feast of Lights program on Friday, December 10, 2021 at 7:00 PM. With the rise of COVID-19 cases our community and county, the 48th annual Feast of Lights program will be live streamed for our community. To provide enough physical distancing we are restricting the in-building audience to just a limited number of family members of participants. For many in our community the Feast of Lights is part of our cherished Christmas traditions, we are sorry that we have to make this last minute change. The community is invited to enjoy this spectacular night of music, Scripture, and drama, honoring the King of Kings. It will still be an evening of lights, bells, instruments, choral singing, congregational singing, shepherds, a Nativity scene, and the retelling of a glorious Christmas story. The program will speak to your hearts of His wondrous love.

You are also invited to an evening of popular Christmas music on Saturday, December 11, at 7:00 PM at the Howard Performing Arts Center on the campus of Andrews University. Join us as we bring in the holidays with a variety of well-known Christmas songs including a grand finale played by the combined musical groups.
