Adventist Community Services

1 Peter 4:10, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.”

A man, beaten down by the rain, came to our Food Pantry for clothes & food. He was wearing a thin jacket, no shirt or socks, and we were able to serve him. He was so happy to receive the clothes that he put them on in the parking lot. Then he sat in the  parking lot and ate an entire 16 oz. jar of peanut butter. He left a little more full, dressed, and hopeful than when he arrived. Thank God for the Better Living Center. (Spokane, Washington) This is only one story of many that is a result of Adventist Community
Services Centers around the North American Division that commit to serving God’s children.

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 is responding to individual needs, developing relationships, and committing to make 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 abjob interview. And so much more.

“I love this facility (New Life Food Pantry, Fultondale, AL) because their Christian walk shows in their attitude of the volunteers and the way they treat the pantry participants.” – Client A

“God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.” Hebrews 6:10 By supporting ACS, you can make a lasting impact and know that your dollars are going to something that is making a difference in someone’s life.

Something In Common: Who Needs Christmas

Something In Common Sabbath School presents “Who Needs Christmas” video series with Andy Stanley

December 10- The World Did
December 17-God Did
December 24-We Do

The details of the Christmas story can seem unbelievable. So now, thousands of years after shepherds watched their flocks and wise men followed the star, you may be asking, “Who needs Christmas?” 

Well, as it turns out, we all do. In the 3-part series, Andy Stanley shows us that the world needed Christmas, God needed Christmas, and we still need Christmas—but maybe not for the reason you think. Everyone is welcome. Sabbath mornings from 10:30-11:30 in PMC room 141.
