All Saints Handbell Choir performing hymn tunes arranged by Dr. James T. Gerber

We are blessed with a special musical treat during the 9:00 and 11:00 am services this weekend; the All Saints’ Handbell Choir will be providing devotional music at various moments during our worship today. Our ringers are excited to be assembled as a bell choir and playing again for the All Saints’ community.
