Hallelujah Handbells: Handbell Choir

On September 12 the Handbell Choir, together with a vocal choir, will perform at Im-manuel. The Chapel Chimers will also play the chimes. 

We have a complete bell choir but are in need of vocalists to sing “As The Deer”. The music is written for sopranos, altos and bass and we are especially in need of altos. Thus far we have 8 people who have said Yes to this beautiful arrangement and are in need of more vocalists. Please join us if you are available on Sept. 12. Practices are at 6:30 Tuesday evenings on 8/31 and 9/7. We pray that you feel that little spiritual tap on your shoulder and answer the call.
