The Seneca Community Church formerly known as the Potomac Grove Colored Methodist Episcopal Church (CME) was established in 1893 on Violettes Lock Road in Seneca, Maryland. Rev. Joseph E. Robertson was one of the earliest pastors.
In the early part of 1940 the church relocated to its current site on Berryville Road. The founding Board of Trustees included Harry Clipper, Chairman, Cornelius Green, Henry Jackson, Golden Driver, Sr., Washington Genies, Sandy Beckwith and William Jackson. Many of the families of the founding members still reside on Berryville Road. The Church has had a number of innovative pastors during its history.
From 1997 to 1999 the church underwent a major renovation. The newly constructed Church was rededicated on March 21, 1999. Rev. Kenneth N. Nelson has served as Senior Pastor since 2006.
The SCC is a member of the International Council of Community Churches (ICCC) http://www.icccnow.org.
The members of this church are truly blessed and thankful for God’s goodness throughout the years. We thank God for our forefathers, their perseverance, their love of God and for the rich legacy that is the Seneca Community Church.
The Church stands bound by the scripture that "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13.
