Wesley Ringers

The Adult Handbell Ensemble at FUMC

The purpose of Wesley Ringers, the adult handbell ensemble at First United Methodist church, is to provide for the musical needs of the congregation and enhance its musical worship.  This is accomplished by working with adult handbell ringers to:

  • Teach them to read music
  • Play with healthy and musical technique
  • Enhance any music skills already developed
  • Cultivate active worship leadership through music in the various worship services at FUMC

All of this is done in an environment that allows for fun and fellowship!

Rehearsals are Sunday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.  We play once a month from September to May and for special concerts and services.  No previous experience is required.

FUMC currently owns a 5 octave set of Malmark Handbells and a 2 octave set of Suzuki Chimes.
