Adventist Community Services (ACS) is the official community outreach ministry of the Seventh-day Adventist® Church in the North American Division territories which comprises of North America, Guam and Micronesia, and Bermuda. ACS serves the whole person, a concept known as holistic ministry whose mission is to “serve communities in Christ’s name.”
The Seventh-day Adventist® Church still sends out hundreds of cross-cultural missionaries every year—more than any other Adventist-affiliated ministry. Although the Adventist Church has experienced tremendous growth there are still many challenges in the mission field today. Adventist Mission highlights these challenges and shows how your mission offerings meet them by helping telling the world about God’s love. Through videos, magazines, the Internet, stories and pictures, Adventist Mission is working to make mission real to Adventists around the world.
The Knoxville Grace Seventh-day Adventist® Church recognizes that everyone experiences financial strain at times and needs external assistance.

The Ellen G. White® Estate, Incorporated, is an organization created by the last will and testament of Ellen G. White to act as her agent in the custody of her writings, handling her properties, "conducting the business thereof," "securing the printing of new translations," and the "printing of compilations from my manuscripts." At the death of Ellen White, July 16, 1915, this self-perpetuating board began to function. Care of her literary properties, under the terms of the will, falls into three areas: (1) possession of the copyrights to her writings and the care and promotion of her books in the English language; (2) preparation of manuscripts for, and the promotion of the translation and publication of her writings in other languages; and (3) custody of the files of manuscripts and other files, and the selection of matter from the Ellen G. White manuscript files for publication. The board now carries a fourth responsibility, which has developed naturally through the years—acquainting Seventh-day Adventists and others with Mrs. White and her work.
