Celebrate
Independence Sunday
with Us
10:30 a.m.
July 1, 2018

 
 

    The annual reading of the Declaration of Independence is a key part of our Independence Sunday service. It features some two dozen participants who reenact the protests of the Colonists by reading sections of the Declaration, punctuated by the ringing of “Allentown’s ‘Liberty Bell.’”

    The Reverend Bob Stevens, senior pastor of Zion’s Church, explains, “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.’” To encourage participation, the church distributes three corner hats and “mob caps” to children in attendance to wear at the service.

    Stephanie Burke, a tour guide and docent at the Liberty Bell Museum housed at the church will be dressed in Colonial era garb and the museum will be open after the ceremony.

    Zion’s church is located at 620 W. Hamilton Street in downtown Allentown. The public is invited. A free-will offering is received.



Colonial Sunday
September 16, 2018
10:30 a.m.

 
   Prayers and hymns from the 1770s recreate a Colonial liturgical experience. The Rev. Bob Stevens leads the service in Colonial garb and will utilize the same biblical text that the Rev. Abraham Blumer used 252 years ago when he preached to the local militia about independence.
