Hallelujah Handbells: Handbell Choir

Happy New Year! The bells were ringing a lot in the later part of December. We performed for the care center residents at CRMC on December 20th – they were a great audience, we all had fun, and there was even a guest appearance by Santa and Mrs. Claus! The bells performed to a packed house on Christmas Eve and then took a much needed break in January, as we had spent so much time pre-paring for Christmas events that I didn’t anticipate such a short time before January’s regularly scheduled performance. During that short break, I was able to get the music selected through April 9th (Easter Sunday) and finally get myself organized. We have a performances where we will be short players, so if you have an interest in playing full time, filling in as a substitute occasionally, or even accompanying us with another instrument, please contact me at any time. Since I’m still new to the congregation, I don’t know who to approach when I am looking for additional musicians. 

Calling all Chapel Chimers – Chapel Chimers practice is on Wednesdays from 5:10 to 6:00 p.m. in the Sunday School classroom. This is for students grades 2 and older are invited and encouraged to participate – this also includes confirmation students (PSSST… will receive 1 service credit each time you perform!) Come check it out – even just for the fun of making music.
