Although it helps to have some music-reading skills and bell experience in this group, beginning ringers are also welcome to grow with us. This group plays about once a month in our worship services.
This year we are expanding ensemble skills and opportunities to occasional quartets, for any ringing level or age level. We also plan to have opportunities for youth and teens to ring. And, of course, we are excited that Rochester will be the host city for the July 2016 National Handbell Musicians of America Seminar at the Convention Center.
For people who prefer a daytime rehearsal, this fun and dedicated group is perfect. Our main ministry is preparing for Christmas and Spring concerts at area adult/nursing homes, though we occasionally play some of our favorite tunes in Sunday worship.

Bell Choirs - directed by Jean Coniber
Join us as we lift our bells up to God. Our bell choirs provide an instrumental ministry that adds to the depth of worship services. We are also fun and caring groups who enjoy spending time together as we make music.
