BELL CHOIR! Come ring with us! All ages welcome!

We are a welcoming and fun group, always looking for kids and adults of all ages to join us. Some musical knowledge is helpful but definitely not required — notes are clearly marked on everyone’s music. Look for a table at the back of Margaret Jewett Hall on Regathering Sunday, where anyone, any age, can give ringing a try!


Rehearsals begin Sunday, September 15, at 10:00 a.m., in Lindsay Chapel, for “Balm in Gilead,” which we will play with the adult choir in Morning Worship on Sunday, October 20. Bell ringing dates have been set in advance for the year, so ringers can sign up to ring in one or all pieces.


Bell Choir dates for the fall are as follows (rehearsals are at 10:00 a.m. in Lindsay Chapel):

September 15,  22, and 29, and October 6, playing in Morning Worship on October 20;

November 3,  10, and 17, playing in Morning Worship on November 24;

December 1,  8, and 15, playing in Morning Worship on December 22.
