Handbell Choirs

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!

Charter Ringers

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.

Jubilation! Ringers
