ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – The Rev. Michael Riley, ordained minister and newspaper columnist, will be preaching at the First Presbyterian Church this Sunday.

The day also marks the second week of Sunday School classes since they resumed last week. All area children are welcome.

Both the worship service and Sunday School begin at 10 a.m. in the church sanctuary.

The church’s adult choir will continue its regular Sunday singing since resuming its musical activities last week following a summer-long hiatus. The choir is directed by David Nunez.

Riley’s sermon is entitled “Straight Lines and Rotten Fruit,” a look at the prophet Amos and how the judgment and grace of God are two sides of the same coin.

He will return to the pulpit on Sunday, Sept. 26, and then again for four straight Sundays, Oct. 10, 17, 24 and 31. The Rev. Barbara Macfie will preach and administer communion on Oct. 3 and Nov. 7.

Riley has been an ordained minister for over 20 years and is a reporter-columnist for the Asbury Park Press. His weekly column, “Only Human,”

appears on Friday in The Press.

Area residents and visitors are invited to join in worshiping at the 120-year-old handicapped accessible church at the corner of Third and E. Highland Aves. All children are welcome and child care is provided during worship services.
