The Joy Bells Handbell Choir is a fun-loving group of ringers who meet from 5:15 to 6:45 p.m. every Wednesday night from September to May. The choir rings beginning to intermediate level music on a 3-octave set of Malmark Handbells and a 2-octave set of Melody Handchimes chrafted by Schulmerich.

Joy Bells provides music for regular worship and rings with Redeemer’s choirs and other instrumentialists for many of the seasonal worship services at Redeemer.

The bell choir was formed during the summer of 1999 after purchasing a 2-octave set of handbells with gifts from Redeemer congregation and memorial funds. The third octave was added in 2001 and handchimes in December of 2003.

At least some music reading ability is necessary to become part of this group and if you are interested in ringing please contact the director, Dianne Kruse at krusefarm@mvtvwireless.net.
