Adults, youth, and children are welcome to participate in one of our handbell ensembles. Our 5 octaves of Malmark bells resound joyfully throughout the acoustics of our sanctuary. Our bell choirs typically meet between September and May, and participate in worship throughout the year. If you feel led to participate in one of our handbell ensembles, please contact Dr. Neil Harmon.
