Independence Sunday Service
July 3, 2022 at 10:45 a.m.
The annual reading of the Declaration of Independence is a key part of our Independence Sunday service. It features some two dozen volunteer participants who reenact the protests of the Colonists by reading sections of the Declaration, punctuated by the ringing of “Allentown’s ‘Liberty Bell.’”
In 1776 it is likely that one or two people read the entire document to an assembled crowd in front of the church, but we encourage everyone in the congregation to participate in this re-enactment. Anyone who attends has the opportunity to rail against King George’s ‘injuries and usurpations.’”
Zion’s church is located at 620 W. Hamilton Street in downtown Allentown. The public is invited. A free-will offering is received.
July 16, 2022 at 12:00 p.m.
Join us for a the dedication of the historical marker showcasing the Liberty Bell Hiding Place. Light refreshments and tours of the Liberty Bell Museum will follow the ceremony.
