Remember Adventist Community Service

Adventist Community Services provides you with opportunities to serve communities in Christ’s name. ACS volunteers provide support and assistance in disaster relief ministries, in elder care, crisis care, community development (inner city/urban), tutoring and mentoring, and ACS promotes youth engagement with Youth Empowered to Serve. Your financial gifts to the Adventist Community Services Offering, December 7, make it possible for ACS to continue impacting and transforming communities--one life at a time.
