Handbell Chior

It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High, to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night!
Psalm 92:1-2

There are currently two adult handbell choirs that are regularly integrated into the Sunday morning worship service. The choirs play a four-octave set of handbells. Besides playing as a stand alone choir, these groups combine with the Chancel Choir and other instrumentalists in a variety of musical styles.

Community Events

The handbell choir has been active in community musical events, such as the candlelight tour of Fredericksburg. The choir was honored to perform with the University of Mary Washington Orchestra to premiere a work written to commemorate the events of September 11, 2001.


Rehearsals for the handbell choirs take place every Thursday from September through May from 5:30 – 7:00 PM in the choir room, which is located under the sanctuary. Anyone who is interested and has music reading skill is welcome to join the handbell choir. Talk to Larry or Mary Ann Casey about playing, or feel free to come join us on Thursday evening!
