ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ -- The Rev. Michael Riley will preach on "Rough Justice" Sunday at the First Presbyterian Church.
The pastor's message at the 10 a.m. service will be based on Luke 18 1-8, a parable on the unjust judge that reminds us not to lose heart in the face of setbacks.
Riley will continue his children's sermon series where youngsters try to "stump the pastor" by placing a personal "treasure" in a brown paper bag. The pastor then picks one bag and creates a children's message from its contents.
In addition to being the church's pastor, Riley is a columnist, staff writer and editorial writer at the Asbury Park Press. His weekly Press column, "Only Human," appears on Fridays.
The 121-year-old, handicapped accessible church is located at Third and E. Highland Aves. and offers extra parking in a new municipal lot next to the Christian Education building at 17 E. Highland Ave.
Child care for four-year-olds and younger is provided during the worship service.
