ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS -- The Rev. Michael Riley will preach on the symbol of baptism in a sermon entitled "Where the Holy Waters Run" at the 10 a.m. Sunday worship service at the First Presbyterian Church.

   During the service, the Rev. Joanne Van Sant, pastor of the Faith Reformed Church of Hazlet, will officiated at the baptism of four-month-old Nevaeh Balbes, daughter of Anthony and Michelle Balbes and granddaughter of Patricia and Michael Marrazzo.

   Michelle Balbes and the Marrazzo are long-time members of the church, as is the recently ordained Rev. Van Sant.

   Riley, the pastor has encouraged area children of the church to attend the service and remain for Sunday School, which resumed last week after a summer hiatus.

   During the service, Riley will continue his his "mystery bag" children's sermon series. During the children's sermon, youngsters try to "stump the pastor" by placing personal "treasures" in brown paper bags, and the minister then creates a message from the contents of a bag.

   Sunday School follows the children's sermon.

   Riley has resumed the church's weekly Bible study at 7 p.m. Wednesdays and has invited the entire community to attend.

   Adult choir resumed last Sunday and practices at 7:30 p.m. on Thursdays and members and other area residents are invited to join the David Nunez-directed group.

   In addition to being pastor of the church, Riley is a columnist, staff writer and editorial writer at the Asbury Park Press. His column, the "Irreverent Reverend," appears on Fridays.

   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.
