Hand Bell Choirs
Munsey has five handbell choirs for musicians of all ages and abilities.
Carillon Ringers - Adult
Rehearsal Time ~ Sunday 5:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Jubilation Ringers - Grades 8-12
Rehearsal Time ~ Sunday, 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. At the present time this group is an ensemble and the players ring 2-9 bells in the music. Some have even played duets and solos. Our high school age youth ring a variety of traditional and contemporary tunes. Fellowship and having fun are our main requirements. In addition to leading worship, we are hoping to ring in the community if the opportunity arises. Musical experience is extremely helpful.
Fanfare Ringers - Middle School Grades 6-7
Rehearsal Time ~ Wednesday 6:15 - 7:30 p.m. Our middle school age youth ring a variety of traditional and contemporary tunes. We enjoy participating in worship and have even been known to create a bell play for worship. No experience is needed to join this group.
Agape Bells - Grade 5
Rehearsal Time ~ Wednesday, 5:40 - 6:15 p.m. Our 5th graders are a beginning bell group, learning handbell techniques. We ring more traditional music to learn the basics and expand from there.Sometimes we perform a bell play for worship with narration and some acting. We play only 2-3 times a year with the focus on learning and having fun. Everyone is welcome to join, no musical experience necessary!
Chimers - Grade 4 in room 210 on the elementary age floor near the children’s choir room.
Rehearsal Time ~ Wednesday, 5:40 - 6:15 p.m. Our 4th graders are in the beginning choir just learning to hold a chime, ring together as a group, and begin learning more about music. We play only a couple of times a year in worship with the focus on learning and having fun! Everyone is welcome to join, no musical experience necessary!
*All the groups will be playing in our spring ring during worship.
Munsey’s handbell choirs have been a part of worship for more than 30 years. We have grown over the years and continue to grow. We love having people who want to praise our Lord through music. You don’t need to have played an instrument, but knowing how to count is helpful. 1,2,3,4 you get the idea. It does take a commitment to learn and practice the music and is often a fun challenge.
