‘Pulpit Freedom Sunday’ observed

PRINCETON — Heritage Baptist Church, 818 N. Church St., will observe Alliance for Defending Freedom’s (ADF) “Pulpit Freedom Sunday” at the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday. “Pulpit Freedom Sunday” is about protecting the inherent right of America’s pastors to choose and deliver the content of their sermons without fearing that the Internal Revenue Service will investigate or punish the church because of something a pastor says from the pulpit.

With this goal in mind, Pastor Chad Delhotal will deliver a message examining the issue of abortion in light of the Scriptures and application will be made to the coming election.
