ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ – The Rev. Michael Riley will talk about where and how to find the joy in our lives Sunday at the First Presbyterian Church.

   In a followup to last week’s sermon about King David in the depths of sorrow and pain, this week he’ll look at the king in great joy, dancing through the streets of Jerusalem — in a 10 a.m. message entitled “The Sheer Joy of It.”

   The pastor, who is a columnist for The Press, also will continue his “mystery bag” children’s sermon series during which youngsters try to “stump the pastor” by placing personal “treasures” in brown paper bags. The minister then creates a message from the contents of a bag.

   Sunday School, to which all youngsters are invited, begins following the children’s sermon.

   The adult choir, directed by David Nunez, will present special music during the service.
