Church Launches Give-A-Bell Campaign

BERLIN — Stevenson United Methodist Church recently approved plans to acquire a two-octave set of high-quality, world renowned Malmark hand bells and establish a hand bell choir for its music ministry and outreach programs through a Give-A-Bell Campaign.

The Give-A-Bell Campaign is structured so all church members, the local community and business owners can participate and contribute to the hand bell program.

“I strongly endorse hand bell ringing for the ease with which it’s learned, the closeness it generates among the choir members, the values such a program teaches, and the beauty of the music and the great contribution and inspiration our handbell choir can bring to the local community,” said Director and Organist Ty Thompson. “We as a whole have concluded that there are few programs, music or otherwise, that can involve so many participants of all ages and have them be proficient in such a short time.”
