The Adventist Community Services (ACS) rally/retreat, held October 27-29, 2017, was rich in learning and fellowship. Keynote speaker Jim Ingersoll runs a ministry called 2 Serve, which trains Adventist young people to serve people in crisis. Students came from Tri-City Christian Academy and Heritage Academy to lead worship and share stories of God’s work. Throughout the weekend, numerous spotlights on community service offered valuable insight and tools.
A workshop on God’s Closet was presented by founder Merryl Moore and by Marlene Nunnaley, God’s Closet-Mills River director. They shared incredible stories of how this ministry has grown in the Carolinas and across America. All are encouraged to pray, plan, and endeavor to serve their community. God will bless richly! The next ACS rally/retreat will be held at Nosoca Pines Ranch next fall.
