Serving Christ Through Music - Our Handbell Ministry Needs Ringers
There are two adult handbell choirs which provide outreach to the community and enrich our worship life here at CLUMC. Both groups are looking for new ringers who read music. Perhaps you have rung in a handbell choir in the past, play the piano or play another musical instrument. You may have learned to read music years ago. It is amazing how quickly the “language” of music resurfaces to your memory! Handbells are a lot of fun and truly bring a marvelous dynamic to our ministry!
Whether you are interested in serving the community by joining our Tuesday Morning Bells (9:15-11am) or contributing to Traditional Sunday worship through the Monday evening Jubilation Ringers (7:30-8:50pm), we have a place for you! Please contact Jeff Weiss at 832-240-4712.
