July 13, 2020

And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. – Romans 11-12

Online Giving Now Available

It’s Here…It’s Here…Online Giving ("Giving" link located upper right corner of the church website) www.sheniafumc.org

Thanks to the COVID-19 Virus our church has been forced to have remote “On-Camera” services on Sunday morning but… the news isn’t all bad. We’ve decided to take advantage of some of the latest technology and offer our members and regular Church-Goers an opportunity to make their regular Sunday Morning Offering ONLINE!

With the help of the new group working with the First National Bank (formerly Century Bank) we now have a direct link for you, sitting at home, to the church to make your offering and regular Tithes. You’ll find a direct link on the Church's Facebook home page AND the Churches Website home page (upper right corner with red arrow) so just click it and select for a one-time giving, set up a regular Tithe, or make a donation and hit submit… It’s really THAT EASY!


July 9th Devotional

Jul. 09, 2020 @ 7:21 pm

"Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today and forever.' (Hebrews 13:8 ESV)

The Lord does not change; His Word stays the same.

It is very comforting to know that we belong to a God who remains unchanged (Malachi 3:6)! We can trust God, build our security and faith upon Him, and believe Him because of His proven dependability and faithfulness. He shows us how to do this in His Word. Sadly, we are prone to rely on other people's counsel and only seek The Lord's wisdom and guidance as a last resort. Unfortunately, we put our trust in the fickleness of individuals who one-minute sing our praises and the next condemn and betray us.

Delight yourself in God's Constancy

What's holding you back from trusting in the One Who never changes? Surrender to Him and take delight in His Unchanging Nature. He will stir His Spirit within you to seek His counsel only and give you countless blessings as well as everything you need to live.

Meditate on the two Scripture passages in this daily devotional. How can you renew your trust and faith in God?

Dear Lord Jesus, I receive by faith that You are the Constant One. I can rely on You and Your Word for everything. Show me Your Truths in fresh and new ways.
