An advanced handbell group - We ring 7-8 times per year in the 8:15 and/or 11:00 traditional services - Knowledge of how to read music is necessary.
Handbells are not just for children and teens! We have three adult handbell groups for beginner to advanced ringers. The difficulty level of handbell music is rated from Level 1 (easy) to Level 6 (most difficult). Each of the groups rings 6-8 times in worship between September and June and participates in the annual Christmas handbell concert. The groups also like to participate in the various festivals that are held by the regional handbell guild (Handbell Musicians of America – Area 3). Our rehearsals are full of laughing and ringing (sometimes more laughing than ringing!) You do not have to know how to read music to learn how to ring handbells! Come and try us out and laugh a little (or a lot…)
