This handbell choir is composed of youth and adults and rehearses on Mondays from 8 to 9 p.m.
The Praise Ringers ring 5 octaves of handbells and 4 octaves of handchimes.
They usually ring for worship once a month, and for festival services such as Christmas Eve and Easter Day.
They also ring in various concerts at Bethany Lutheran church.
Being able to read music is a "plus" for Praise Ringers, but isn't required, since all parts are color-coded!
We have openings for new members!
