ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS — The title of this Sunday’s sermon by the Rev. Paul F. Rack, pastor of the 124-year-old First Presbyterian Church, will be “Jubilee” during the 11 a.m. worship service.

According to the pastor, central to Jesus’ message, and that of Scripture generally, is the resetting of the economy, the general remission of debts, and the restoration of original equality we see represented in the principles represented in the practices of Sabbath and Jubilee.

The sermon is based on Scriptures found in Leviticus 25:1-7 and Luke 4:18-19 and 11 2-4.

The David Nunez-directed adult choir will sing during the service.
