Hallelujah Handbells: Handbell Choir

. . . . New Immanuel Handbells’ Director

Denise “Dee Dee” Frahm and I am the new Bell Choir Direc-tor at Immanuel. My husband is Jake, who works as an RN in the Pain Clinic at CRMC. We have 2 sons, Charlie and John. I have worked at Cuyuna Country Auto Center for 2 years as the service writer, and previously was the manager at Salem WEST and medical transcriptionist. We started coming to Immanuel because of the active youth program and joined in November 2020. While this is the first time I’ve directed a choir, I was heavily active with music while at Salem, having played for 10 years with the bell choir and 7 years on the Praise Team on bass guitar. When I have free time, I enjoy camping, bowling, spending time with family and friends, and playing and listening to music.
