The Handbell Choirs provide additional music for many worship services during the church year.
The Handbell program uses four octaves of Malmark bells. All Handbell choir members work independently to read their own their music while performing together as one group. The ability to read music is helpful, but not required. Any level of musicianship is welcome!
