The Handbells rejoined the Music Ministry at First Baptist Church, Saks in the fall of 2012 after being inactive for several years. The group has consisted of people from ages 14 through 80 and above, who enjoy making music that glorifies God, while trying to complement the overall worship experience of the church. The requirements for joining the group are basic music reading skills and a desire to have fun. Previous experience in ringing bells is helpful but not necessary. The Handbell rehearsals are currently on hiatus but are hoping to begin again when it becomes feasible. Come and join us – you’ll never know until you try what you can do. Contact Shirley Drury for more information.
