Tell me SUM-thing Good!
Bells on the Beach!
Our Chancel Ringers had marvelous time playing on Block Island last weekend! Our former pastor, Peter Preiser, and his wife Carrie are now serving a beautiful church on the island. Peter discovered a set of handbells there, and raised the funds to have them refurbished. He then invited our bell choir to play a Saturday night concert and a Sunday service to get people interested in forming an ecumenical Island Bell Choir. The islanders welcomed our choir with open arms and lovely accommodations. A great time was had by all, and many of the concert attendees expressed an interest in learning to play!
A highlight of the trip was an impromptu bit of bell-playing on the beach, which drew a crowd and many smiles!
