Chancel Bells is our high school/adult handbell choir that is flexible, fun and offers good fellowship. We rehearse for roughly 6 weeks per session, meeting once a week, Thursday nights, from 8:00-9:00 p.m., then play in worship. Our schedule for the program year is (approx.): Mid-October, Advent Lessons & Carols in early December, Christmas Eve, mid-February, mid-April and early June. Ring for one session, ring for all! We have 5 octaves of Schulmerich handbells and 3 octaves of Schulmerich MelodyChimes.
From Mid-June to Labor Day week-end we have a casual 8:00 a.m. communion service at Gillson Park, looking out on beautiful Lake Michigan. Guitars provide our music and accompaniment for singing. If you play a little or a lot, consider joining this group for one Sunday or all. Rehearsals are mutually agreed upon by the members and are flexible.
Whether in a solo capacity or as part of a small ensemble, instrumentalists add variety and inspiration to our worship music. Those who are interested in participating from time to time are encouraged to contact Peggy Massello, Director of Music and Worship
