We are looking for a part-time bell director, beginning at 3 hrs a week, Sept to May/June. We practice Tues eves 6-7:30pm. Our aim is to play once a month, Christmas, Easter, and possibly one or two other church events. We have one Sunday service 10am, which is primarily traditional, although we do have a praise band which participates in worship also. Currently, our bell program is smaller than in the past. Right now we have one choir of 9 ringers, BUT we have twenty 4th and 5th graders, so the potential is there to grow the program. We’d like to see it increase.
