CLAYTON — Salem Church of God will bring in the New Year with a three-week teaching series titled “Today.”
“Today … it’s a gift,” said Steve Southards, lead pastor at Salem. “Today is the first day of the rest of your life and a great day to start living the life you’ve always wanted; to be who you’ve always wanted to be. In this series, we are going to learn how to live with purpose, passion and intentionality.”
The theme scripture for the series is Matthew 6:34, which says, “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
The series schedule:
• Jan. 1: “Today” – not putting off for tomorrow what you can do today, with Nathanael Lyon, Salem’s pastor to students, speaking. The lone worship service that day is at 11 a.m.
• Jan. 8: “Be Positive” – remaining positive, not because of our feelings, but because of God’s promises; Southards speaking. Worship services at 9:30 and 11 a.m.
• Jan. 15: “Make It Count” – focusing on the important instead of the urgent; Southards speaking. Worship services at 9:30 and 11 a.m.
Salem Church of God is at 6500 Southway Road in Clayton. To learn more about Salem or the “Today” series, please visit salemchurch.org or call (937) 836-6500.
