ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS -- The Rev. Barbara A. Macfie will be the guest speaker at the 10 a.m. worship service Sunday at the First Presbyterian Church. She will also administer the monthly Holy Communion.

   The sermon is entitled "Setting An Example For All to See" and reflects on English and American history and what it means to not conform to the patterns of this world.

   The church's pastor, the Rev. Michael Riley, will act as liturgist and will continue his "mystery bag" children's sermon series where youngsters try to "stump the pastor" by placing a personal "treasure" in a bag. He then picks a bag and creates a children's message from its contents.

   Riley, an Asbury Park Press columnist, will return to the pulpit next Sunday, July 8. His column, now called the "Irreverent Reverend,"  appears on Fridays.

   Macfie has been an ordained Presbyterian minister for 12 years and is a counselor who concentrates on her private practice at Phoenix Counseling Center, Metuchen.

   The 122-year-old, handicapped accessible church at Third and E. Highland Aves. has extra parking available in a new municipal lot next to the Christian Education Building on East Highland Avenue.

   Child care for four-year-olds and younger continues to be provided during the regular worship service.
