St. Mark's Ringers
St. Mark’s Ringers is our church’s handbell choir, which plays a beautiful, three-octave set of Schulmerich handbells. This choir adds to worship on a monthly basis by providing beautiful handbell music for preludes and at communion at both the 8:45 and 11:00 services and is now under the highly-skilled leadership of our Assistant Director of Music, Dr. Mary Monroe.
This group is open to anyone from youth to adults. You don’t even have to be able to read music. As they say, “If you can count, you can play bells!” This is a great group of people that really has fun as they make music. Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 5:00 to 6:00 in the church balcony, and the choir takes a break for the summer from roughly June until September. Contact Dr. Mary Monroe or James Holyer with questions or to sign up.
