Mercies New Every Morning

Every morning demonstrates God’s grace, a new beginning in which gloom must flee.

Thank you.
What a great initiative.  Our church in Shepparton is one of the churches on this roster, as they join together with other Christian church families to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Social Restrictions Easing...

What will this look like for your church, or small group?  Please prayerfully plan your way forward.  To repeat what has been communicated from our administration before, "We’re entrusting local churches to respond appropriately as rules are relaxed.  Remember, some things are permissible but not everything is helpful."

Adventist World Radio is about to launch a worldwide online prophesy series #UBP20 and is looking to mobilise a huge digital task force in a short amount of time.  The initial aim #5Kin5days was way too small!  it is now #10Kin5days and already at just over 9000.

Join this world wide movement.  Once you sign up you will receive daily missions and training that will lead your circle of influence to visit the evangelism series landing page.

Avondale Offering | June 6

Avondale University College needs your help to support students who lose income because of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Giving to the Avondale Offering will ensure these students can still afford tuition, textbooks and on-campus accommodation. We seek to transform students who then transform their communities, so retention is important—we can’t afford to lose students even if they’re struggling to afford to stay. Support our economic hardship grants by giving to the Avondale Offering in your church on Sabbath, June 6, or by donating online at  (donations above $2 are tax deductible in Australia). Ellen White valued transformation, too. She described it as the power to think and do and as a gift from the Creator. Giving to Avondale demonstrates your support for her philosophy. Thank you for journeying with us through this new normal.

"Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God." Phil 1:3. 
We thank God for you and your consistency in giving your tithe and offerings, supporting our church in its mission to serve and build the Kingdom of God.
