Are you looking for your next step
Maybe you just know it’s time to do something, but you’re not sure what, and you just need something simple — one step at a time.
Steve believes that we should all expect to grow in our faith. We teach through the Bible verse-by-verse because it is the best way to know the Bible and the Bible is the best way to know Jesus.
We hope that the brief information about us so far will encourage you to check us out.
We promise a judgment free worship experience. We know that everyone of us could use some grace from time to time. We hope to see you next Sunday!
We are Saving a Seat Just for You!
It doesn't matter how you dress, what candidate you are going to vote for, or what doubts you have. You matter to us and you are always welcome here.
I hope and pray everyone is doing well! I miss our time together as we fellowship and worship our Lord together. As I was reading scripture this morning, I read
Psalms 112:6-7 "Surely the righteous will never be shaken; they will be remembered forever. 7 They will have no fear of bad news; their hearts are steadfast, trusting in the Lord."
It is so incredible to serve the sovereign God who loves us, cares for us and protects us. In these critical days, may we be wise in our decisions and trusting in our God! Martin and I are at the church Monday thru Friday, so please call us if you need anything.
Keep watching the website and for Emails regarding Services this Sunday. As of now, we anticipate we will NOT have Services; however, if anything changes we will let you know A.S.A.P.

All For His Glory,
I am sure many of you have been watching what is happening around the world as a result of those who would destroy America are looting and bringing violence to Cities everywhere, including here in Orlando, in the name of injustice. I believe that those involved in the looting care nothing about the death of George Floyd or those who have been victimized by bad actors under the authority of the government. This is not just a black issue. It is a human issue caused by our sin nature and the fallen world we all live in. Only through the grace and power of God will this be overcome.
I know that many of us look at what is happening around the world and in our own communities and feel helpless. You are not helpless. You are powerful and your weapons are spiritual. I believe this physical, temporal realm we live in is directed by a more powerful realm in the spiritual. Remember what Ephesians 6:12 tells us: "For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places". As a Church, we need to stand in the gap for those who are defenseless against these spiritual powers and authorities whose whole purpose to "steal, kill, and destroy" mankind and everything Christ stands for. Our greatest weapon is prayer.
We are asking you to help us in this mission. Our Church is joining with other Churches in a movement called: "Orlando Prays".
Orlando Prays is a part of the America Prays network. They are an inter-denominational, multi-ethnic, Jesus-centered prayer movement covering Orlando in 24/7 prayer. America is in desperate need of revival and spiritual awakening. Our only hope is prayer. Unified prayer in the upper room preceded the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost (Acts 1:14). We are asking that you join us in prayer. Will you stand in the gap for Orlando and our Church community?
To catch the heart and the need behind this great opportunity, please WATCH THIS VIDEO:

I copied this from the America Prays website:
Our vision is to unite and equip churches in Orlando in 24/7 prayer for transformation and spiritual awakening.
Our call is to devote ourselves to prayer for our communities and nation. The Early Church’s devotion to prayer brought them to a place of unity and common purpose. Acts 1:14, “These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer.”
Every church in America regardless of their size, location, annual budget, worship style or theology can adopt a day or half day of prayer every month. A monthly day of prayer is not the end game, but it is a simple on-ramp that helps churches develop a culture of prayer.
After learning about Orlando Prays, I was certain that you would feel the same burden for our City as Pastor Steve and the rest of our Pastor's Advisory Team has for the people of Orlando. Our Church is one of the most caring Churches I have had the privilege of serving with. As a result, we have stepped out in faith and made a commitment on your behalf.
Shenandoah 's COMMITMENT:
To begin with, Shenandoah has committed to adopt a monthly half day of prayer covering the hours between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. in prayer. We are asking you to pray in 15-60 minute segments from home, work, school or at the church. We have chosen the 10th of every month as our time of corporate prayer. If enough people sign up to pray and you want to expand our time on the 10th that would be fantastic. You can pray at 2 a.m. if that is best for you. The key is that God’s people are praying.
Would you Email the church at firstname.lastname@example.org or call and leave a message for Martin at (407) 273-2211 and let him know what time you will be praying on the 10th of each month?
Thank you. We are expecting that your ministry of prayer for our City will change the lives of every person in Orlando. God is good. He has called on His people to be a house of prayer. It is time we obeyed Him, don’t you think?
We can’t wait to share with you what God will do because you prayed for His people and those He loves.
Shenandoah is a Southern Baptist Church worshipping in the Conway area of East Orlando near the intersection of Pershing Avenue and Goldenrod.
We are a Church that is committed to the truth, but live in God's grace. We are a family, and we go out of our way to make you feel a part of the family right away. Please come and see for yourself.

We are examining our options and discussing when it will be best to open for Church Services and Bible Study. During this time, our Church has also decided to use this time to make some much needed improvements to our property.
AS a result of the many changes created by COVID-19 and the new awareness surrounding our health and safety, Shenandoah is taking steps to ensure your safety and those who attend our Church. There are many things we don’t know and a few things that medical professionals and officials do know about viruses. For people who are uniquely at risk, this virus is of even greater concern.
Whether in your home or at your office or at our Church, clean air and surfaces are going to be vital components of a common sense plan for protection against any virus. Because viruses can’t be treated with antibiotics, it’s every health expert’s goal that people would utilize best practices to avoid contracting COVID-19 in the first place. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends common sense hygiene practices, like washing your hands and avoiding physical contact. But, we want to do more where we can. Hygiene can even extend to the air you breathe. That’s why respiratory hygiene has become a topic of discussion during the spread of this virus.
At Shenandoah, we will be upgrading our air conditioning systems to include ionizer systems. Ionization is a process that blankets an entire room or church, addressing viruses both in the air and on surfaces. We will be installing 5 ionizers to cover our sanctuary and nursery area.

THREE POINTS ELEMENTARY AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAM
Shenandoah is reaching out to the Three Points Elementary Community with an exciting After School program on Thursdays for our 3rd through 5th graders. Here is what one Principal had to say about Kids Beach Club in her school:
"Kids Beach Club® has helped our students in a number of ways. It's important to teach our kids about academics, but it's equally important to teach the whole child. We can't teach the Bible as a school, but Beach Club can do that. I have seen students' self-esteem and self-worth grow in a positive manner. I have seen students who sometimes have a bad attitude with adults and peers be able to turn things around and start making friends. you see the kids coming together as a family. I love everything about Beach Club! It's a wonderful program and I think it's awesome for our kids to be able to participate.
"We’re seeing such a difference. Our discipline is drastically down, that’s huge. It’s fun to see the change in the kids. One of those who was a repeat offender - a frequent flyer to our office - came in yesterday and said, 'I just need to calm myself down before I get into trouble.' Last year he would have just thrown a punch. When I asked him what he was thinking, he told me about a story that he learned in Beach Club. It’s fun to see the change in the kids. It’s making a difference not just in school but also in their whole lives."
