UPDATE – 18 March 2020

SATURDAY PROGRAMS CANCELLED

We have been advised that, after careful prayer, consideration and advice from health professionals the Presidents of the Australian Union Conference (AUC) has recommended that all Adventist Churches be closed until 30 April 2020. This recommendation has been endorsed by the Victorian Conference and is effective 17th March 2020.

At this point, the specific plans for how we can continue to minister with and to our community at MASDAC are being worked through. Once these details are known we will communicate this to our regular members via email and also updating our webpage and social media accounts.

Please ensure we have your correct contact details by completing this Form

We would still encourage you to continue abiding by recommended hygiene practices.

I want to worship on Sabbath!

Great! We’re here to serve you. While we can’t meet in person, we have Churches that are providing live streaming services on Sabbath. Past Sabbath worship videos are also available for you to watch. 

Three Churches are currently live-streaming (more to come!)

What about Sabbath School?

There are various Sabbath School options that you can also view online. Interactive Sabbath School groups are being prepared – watch this space! 

We would recommend Hope Sabbath School Watch Now

What about Tithes and Offerings?

With the need for social distancing because of the COVID-19 Virus and with many churches needing to implement alternate measures to group gatherings you may be wondering how to return your tithes and offerings while not at church.  We have some options for you to consider.

  1. Use the MASDAC eGiving website. If you have not used this before you will need to set up a myAdventist account and there are instructions on the site as to how to create this account.
  2. Donate directly through our website using Tithe.ly by clicking on the Giving button on our menu.

Unfortunately, at this stage we are not set up for receiving cash contributions but will be looking at providing a safe option for this in the near future.
