ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ - The Rev. Michael Riley's sermon Sunday at the First Presbyterian Church will focus on Paul explaining to the world that there is only one God in a message entitled the "Tomb of The Unknown God".
The new pastor also will continue his "mystery bag" children's sermon series when youngsters try to "stump the pastor" by placing a personal "treasure" in a brown paper bag. He then picks one bag and creates a children's message from its contents.
The pastor will hold his weekly Bible study at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, a class to which all members and friends of the church are welcome.
In addition to being the church's pastor, Riley is a columnist, staff writer and editorial writer at the Asbury Park Press. His weekly Press column, "Only Human," appears on Fridays.
