Our handbell choirs provide music for both worship services and special programs in the church and community. The handbell program at GCPC has been a long-standing and important part of our music ministry. In fact, we are beginning our 32nd year of handbell ringing using 5 octaves of Malmark handbells and handchimes. While handbell ringing is a unique mix of techniques with aural and visual artistry – it is also a whole lot of fun!
The Charter Ringers are an ensemble for intermediate to advanced handbell ringers and play a range of exciting and challenging music. They are co-directed by Celia Nicholas and Chris Krug and rehearse on Wednesdays at 6:10pm in Room 1.
The Jubilation! Ringers are an ensemble for beginning to intermediate handbell ringers. They rehearse on Sundays at 5:00pm in Room 1 and are directed by Kathy Bures.
The Exaltation! Ringers are made up of 8th-12th grade youth and directed by Trey Bures. Ex! Ringers rehearse on Sundays in Room 1 at 4:00pm.
