RRPC has a strong history of Handbell ringing as a part of our music ministry. Ringing is one of the best ways to learn how to read music and is also a great way to meet new people in the church. RRPC has a five octave set of Malmark Handbells, a three octave set of Schulmerich Handbells, and a five octave set of Malmark Hand Chimes.
River Road Ringers
River Road Ringers is our more advanced Handbell Ensemble. This group regularly rings through level 3 compositions, occasionally ringing level 4. This ensemble is made up of experienced ringers and new ringers alike. The River Road Ringers typically travels to handbell festivals in our area and leads worship regularly.
Rehearsals | Wednesday Evenings from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Handbell Room (Second Floor)
Intergenerational Bells (beginner)
The intergenerational bell ensemble is designed for ringers age 11 and up, and focuses on simple pieces (Level 1 & Level 2). This ensemble is perfect for anyone interested in trying out handbells. A further benefit of this group is the intergenerational nature of its design. Through this ensemble you will be able to interact with people of all ages and foster relationships that will last a lifetime. We hope that you will consider joining the Intergenerational Handbell Ensemble!
