ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS — The Rev. Paul F. Rack will preach Sunday on the announcement of redemption and release found in the Book of Isaiah, which he calls the root of all good news.

     The pastor’s sermon, entitled “It’s Over,”  will be presented during the 11 a.m. Sunday worship service at the First Presbyterian Church.

     According to Rack, the sermon focuses on the Isaiah 40:1-11 message that says that “whatever is oppressing us is over, finished, complete, fulfilled, and that God has placed us in a new world of hope and peace. These words were repeated by John the Baptizer and embodied by Jesus Christ.”

     The David Nunez-directed adult choir will provide the music for the service, which marks the Second Sunday of Advent. The choir practices at 7:30 p.m. Thursdays and is seeking new members.

     Sunday School, which is open to all area children, begins following the children’s sermon.


The holiday season is approaching quickly, and many families are looking to board their pets while they travel. It’s the perfect time to update vaccinations before holiday travels begin. Call today to schedule an appointment. (732) 291-4400

     The church will also continue its recently initiated brief worship service at 7 p.m. Saturday, which is intended to offer area residents a time other than Sunday to worship.

     The church will conduct its annual Christmas Eve service at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 24.

     Child care and activities for all children are provided during all services at the church, which is located at the corner of Third and East Highland Aves., where extra parking is available is in a new municipal lot next to the Christian Education building on East Highland Ave.
