Churches plan Independence Day events

Episcopal Church plans

Independence Day event

The Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Fork will host its third annual Independence Day Service on Monday, July 5 at 2 p.m. at the church, 183 Fork-Bixby Road Advance.  The church service will feature patriotic music with a reception to follow in the church Parish Hall. All are welcome.

To err on the side of safety everyone is asked to wear a mask since there are some that have yet to be vaccinated.

There will be a reception following the service with individually wrapped food.  The church is not yet allowed to prepare a meal as has been done in the past.

The church website is ascension-fork.org. The Facebook page can be found at The Episcopal Church of the Ascension at Advance.  Phone number is 336-998-0857.
