First United Methodist Church of Hot Springs is blessed with four opportunities for adults, youth, and children to ring in a handbell choir.
Our Celebration and Jubilation! adult handbell ringers regularly contribute to worship on Sunday mornings and at other times during the church year, especially during the Holy Week / Easter and Christmas seasons. Both groups have fun each year at handbell festival—a highlight of the year occurring each February. Celebration Bells currently meet at 11:00 a.m. on Mondays; Jubilation! Bells meet at 5:30 pm on Tuesdays.
Our church possesses two five-octave sets of Schulmerich bells, a set of Suzuki handchimes, and their own rehearsal room complete with piano for pieces arranged for instrumental accompaniment.
If you are desire to be able to play an instrument, consider learning handbells, as they are an instrument that one can sound good on within just a short period of time. Or, if you are an accomplished handbell ringer, consider the handbell ministry at First United Methodist Church. We have a place for both beginners or seasoned ringers!
