ah first presbyterian churchATLANTIC HIGHLANDS — The Rev. Paul F. Rack will preach Sunday on John’s reminder that we are a welcoming church and that we must be careful not to allow misguided individuals to accrue too much power.

Rack’s message is entitled “You’re Welcome,” based on 3 John, which is the disciple’s third and final letter and provides a tiny window into church life in the first century.

The service will be held in the air-conditioned Fellowship Hall in the rear of the 126-year-old First Presbyterian Church at Third and East Highland avenues.

“John lifts up the welcoming ministry of the community, especially regarding traveling mission workers,” according to the pastor. “At the same time he has critical words to say about a particular self-serving leader who does not welcome others.

“John reminds us that power in the church is based on the authority of Jesus, who distributes it among many servants.”
