Joyful Ringers

The handbell choir of GCC is directed by Gary Wendt and was founded in 1985 by Norreen Klemens. Our current ensemble has grown to five octaves. We ring Schulmerich handbells and five octaves of Malmark handchimes. This choir plays for worship once per month and on Christmas Eve. Annual concerts and workshops are also part of our schedule, which occasionally require additional rehearsal time. Membership is limited to fifteen members, but substitute ringers are always welcome!
