Malmark Handbells and Choirchimes are crafted in Pennsylvania and have a lifetime guarantee. They are a gift that lasts for generations to come! We will have a three-octave set (37 bells) of both bells and chimes. Anyone can learn to play the bells, and the chimes are especially suitable for children to play.
There are several ways by which you may wish to participate in the “Give-a-Bell” Program. Single bell sponsorship ranges from $316 to $517, depending on the size of the bell. The sponsorship cost of each bell includes a portion of the cost of cases, tables, music binders, shipping, and other equipment needed for the program.
You may choose to give a bell individually, or several members or families may give a bell together. The handle of each bell will provide a place for permanent inscription in honor or in memory of a loved one. You may also choose to contribute to the purchase of Choirchimes in any amount. Choirchimes cannot be engraved, but a permanent acknowledgement of donors will be placed in the cases.
Beginning July 3, there will be a table in the Gathering Place each Sunday where you can ring a bell and make your gift.. Click here to download and print the donation form.
We are excited about all the possibilities this program brings to our church, and we expect to have our bells and chimes ready to play this fall. If you are interested in ringing bells, please speak to our Music Director, Cindy Hunter.
