Bell Choir Practice; Sanctuary 🎶

Playing handbell music at St. Barnabas is fun and easy. Our multi-generational choir of kids and adults rings notes that are already planned out and color-coded, like paint-by-number painting. No music reading necessary. Come see how we practice, or join in yourself!
