Through gifts to the benevolent fund, ministry occurs, as assistance is offered to:
Senior Adults Who Have Outlived Their Resources: ACV members with limited income and assets are offered assistance with the necessities of life such as housing, meals , and services offered at ACV. All this is done confidentially with the goal of protecting the dignity of the individual.
Families in Need: Families are served in a variety of ways. Advent Christian pastors are offered a place for respite when needing refreshing and time away from the burdens of ministry. Families in crisis and single-parent families served by ACV often receive counseling and assistance getting back on their feet.
Children: Children’s ministries continue at ACV. Adventure Camp provides foster children with an opportunity to heal from the scars of their turbulent lives, a chance to fellowship with peers dealing with the same issues and to learn positive ways to cope. Leadership Development Training offers high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to hone their leadership potential and develop an ethical foundation for their lives and careers. Camp Suwannee, ACV’s youth camp provides the camp atmosphere that is so effective in reaching youth with positive messages of hope and faith.
Gifts that are not otherwise earmarked go to the Benevolent Fund.
Some of our donors prefer to give toward the operating costs of the programs and services at ACV, assisting with supplies, equipment , and other tangible operating costs. Contact us for a list of most needed items.
Still, other donors enjoy giving toward the development of the community, as we hold capital campaigns to construct new facilities or when they learn of a need to update an existing structure.
