Our Handbells and Handchimes

First Church is home to a full 5 octave set of Malmark handbells, and a 3 octave set of Malmark Handchimes.  Both were loving given by Ann Sabo and the late Frances Barry, to glorify God through the sound of beautiful bell and chime ringing.  Bells are typically used by the Meetinghouse Ringers and sometimes the Youth Choir, while the chimes offer an alternate sound for those groups, and as a trainer instrument in preparation for handbells.  The bells are carefully stored at church, and they are regularly polished and cared for in an effort to lengthen their life.
