A Note from Kelley:
The Handbell Ministry at Trussville FUMC has been very busy this year. Ring Refresh 2016 started the year in August. Since then lots of ringing filled the air including ringing for the 8:30/11:00 Sanctuary, Combined and Grace Vision Services, the Veterans’ Day Celebration Service, Lessons and Carols, the Live Nativity, the Maundy Thursday Service and the Spring Concert. The ringing was not limited to the confines of Trussville FUMC. Joyful Jesus Ringers spread lots of joy and happiness Christmas Chiming for some of our Shut-Ins. Jubilant Ringers journeyed to St. Vincent’s East and rang for the Blessing of the Nativity and Christmas Tree and attended the two-day Central Alabama Handbell Festival. All of this was made possible because of extremely talented and dedicated ringers surrounded by a very loving and supportive church family. Many thanks to the ringers for all their hard work and faithfulness and to our church family for your tremendous support. Special thanks to all who attended the Spring Handbell Concert last Sunday and to those who helped with the setup and takedown.
Note: Wednesday, May 3rd was our last rehearsal for both Jubilant Ringers and Joyful Jesus Ringers until we start back in the fall. We will begin an introductory handbell class in September for adults and youth. This is a great time to learn handbells!
