ATLANTIC  HIGHLANDS, NJ - The Rev. Paul F. Rack will continue his series of sermons looking at St. Paul's letter to the Galatians during the 11 a.m. Sunday service at the First Presbyterian Church.

       The pastor will also administer Holy Communion.

       Rack's sermon, entitled "Paul's Story,"  is drawn from the Book of Galatians 1:613-2:14 and focuses on the apostle telling the story of his conversion and early experiences in the church as a way to validate both his Jewishness and that his preaching was approved by the original disciples of Jesus, according to the pastor.

       Among the questions to be covered are:

              * What is our story?

              * Where has our faith been tested?

              * How well do we reflect the equality and liberation of the good news in our own lives?

              * How many gospels are there?

              * How many can be true?

              * What makes one version truer than another?

              * How do we know when we are hearing a false gospel?"

       The David Nunez-directed adult choir will provide the music.

       The church Board of Deacons will host a reception following the service.

       The service at the 124-year-old church at Third and E. Highland Avenues will be held in the church's Fellowship Hall in the rear of the sanctuary for the final time this summer as part of a casual seasonal program. The worship will resume in the sanctuary Sunday, Oct. 5.

       Sunday School, which is open to all area children, resumes Sunday.

       Child care and activities for all children are provided during all services held at the church. 

       The Deacons' second annual Vendor Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11 at the church, and is open to the public.
