Calling all Ringers!
We are starting rehearsals for both handbell choirs at St. Luke. No music experience or music reading is required to participate. The music is color coded and easy to learn. We have a group that meets at 6:30 on Mondays and a more experienced group that meets at 7:30. Playing handbells is lots of fun and a great way to be part of the worship life at St. Luke. If you are interested in joining, just drop in on Monday nights or contact Karen Girard at Karen.Girard@gmail.com.
