Adventist Community Services
What We Do…
Adventist Community Services (ACS) assists the local church in training members to provide humanitarian relief and be active in meeting local and community needs. This ministry serves in many forms including soup kitchens, thrift stores, disaster relief, clothing distribution, elder care, tutoring, mentoring, and other local community projects.
Grants Available for Renovations
The North American Division Adventist Community Services have a grant program for local ACS groups with facilities that need some renovating or updating. This offer is to help cover capital purchases only, like tables, refrigerators, flooring, light fixtures, ect. An application needs to be filled out and criteria met, then it is reviewed and submitted to the NAD board for approval. This grant will not be available for operation expenses. There are only three times a year this application can be submitted.
