Established back in 1879 as the Dorcas Society, Adventist Community Services (ACS) has transitioned over the years into a dynamic network of Adventist churches and trained volunteers to meet the immediate physical needs of people in their community who have been impacted by a natural or man-made disaster. Regardless of the size of the crisis, ACS is there to help those who are in need of a loving hand.
Adventist Community Services Disaster Response has been present during many national emergencies such as hurricane Harvey and the Paradise fires. Locally, our Texico church food banks and pantries responded during the COVID-19 pandemic and helped provide food for many people in our communities. ACS is a valuable resource to our local churches, and as a result helps communities become more aware of the Seventh-day Adventist Church and its mission.
If are interested in becoming an ACS volunteer or starting an ACS ministry in your local church please contact Pastor Leonard Cummings at [email protected].
