ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS — With less than a week until Christmas, the youth of the First Presbyterian Church will perform a Christmas skit entitled “The Christmas Story” during Sunday’s 11 a.m. worship service.
The church has also announced that it will conduct its annual Christmas Eve candlelight Communion service at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 24.
This Sunday’s service marking the Fourth Sunday of Advent will be presided over by the Rev. Paul F. Rack, the church’s pastor.
The church will also continue its recently initiated informal service at 7 p.m. Saturday. The new 30-minute evening service is intended to offer area residents, both children and adults, with an alternate time to worship together.
All members, friends and area residents are invited to attend any or all three service, which will be held in the church’s festively decorated sanctuary.
