ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS -- The Rev. Paul F. Rack will preach Sunday on how love is how people identify those who follow Jesus.

       He will present a message entitled "Who Is It?," based on John 13:21-38, at the 11 a.m. worship service at the 125-year-old First Presbyterian Church. The pastor will also administer Holy Communion.

       "Jesus’ last supper with his disciples ends with him upset, Judas departing to sell him out, and everyone else clueless," according to Rack.

       "It is another picture of normal life that Jesus has to mend by talking to them about how important it is for them to love each other. Love is how people will identify those who follow Jesus."

      Organist David Nunez will accompany the adult choir in its singing of the offertory anthem and Communion music.
      Sunday School classes for school-aged children begin at 11 a.m. Sunday and all area parents are invited to sign up their children by calling Elder Ruth Churak at 732 801-4756 or the church office at 732 291-9265. Child care for younger children will continue to be provided during Sunday School and the worship service.

       Bible Study at Sissy’s will resume at 11:15 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 4, at Sissy's Restaurant in the municipal harbor. All area residents are welcome to attend.

       In celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, the church is rededicating itself to supporting the Atlantic Highlands Food Pantry. Member ands friends are urged to donated non-perishable food stuffs on a regular basis. Fall's particular goal is the donation of 125 after-school snacks and 125 coins for the anniversary jug, located in the back of the church.
