Community Service

First Coast International Adventist Community Services (ACS) works to bring help and hope through ministries of compassion in Christ's name.

As a needs-oriented organization, ACS provides basic services, such as food distribution, to the general public every Monday afternoon from 3:00-5:00 pm.

In addition to food, we address other services such as disaster response, health screening and health education. We partner directly with other local agencies and organizations to provide free resources on behalf of people of all social economic levels in our community.
