The Good News Ringers
Elementary and Middle School Bell Choir
The Good News Ringers is Waterford Central UMC’s children’s handbell ensemble. This is a welcoming group where all children from 4th to 8th grade can get exposure to ringing handbells, being part of a musical team, and leading music for Sunday service. They will learn the basics of handbell ringing, reading music, developing rhythmic skills, and being an integral part of a team. In addition, they will share laughter, fellowship, learn the value of working smart and attention to detail, and enjoy the blessing of accomplishment as they polish each new piece.
The Good News Ringers provides a safe and accepting group to develop musical skills. Additionally, the group performs during worship approximately every six weeks, providing opportunities to develop and hone live performance skills. The diversity of the musical talent within the group also enables children to learn new skills from peers, take on a leadership role in rehearsal, and learn from Central’s Music Director, a professional musician and performer.
If you would like to join The Good News Ringers following the fall athletic/marching band season, please know that this is an option. Both choirs are under the direction of Central’s Director of Music.
Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 5:00–5:45pm.
If you’re interested in learning more or joining The Good News Ringers, Contact Music Director, Kevin Naeve, by email or in person.
