New Handbell Ringers
will be introductory rehearsals for people interested in learning how to ring
handbells immediately following the 9:15 AM services on Sunday, July 21 and
Sunday, July 28. We will meet in the sanctuary. These rehearsals
are open to anyone ages 12 and older. If you already know how to read
music, that is very helpful, but it is not required. There is no
obligation for you to commit to the handbell choir at this point: these
sessions are meant to give you an opportunity to see if handbell ringing is for
you! If people are interested in continuing, we will hold more rehearsals
throughout the summer. This is a great opportunity for you to try ringing with
other people who are just learning as well. If you have any questions or
concerns, please feel free to call Shirley Kline at 570-386-2557. Hope to see
