Bells have been part of Christian worship services for centuries—from calling communities to worship, to cacophonous rejoicing, to mournful tolling. Proclamation’s two handbell ensembles, Soli Deo Gloria and IGNITE, help lead our congregation in worship throughout the year.

Soli Deo Gloria is our adult and youth handbell choir, open to anyone high school age and older. They rehearse Wednesday nights, from 5:30-6:15 p.m. This year, they are scheduled to play in worship on October 23 (AM), November 20 (AM), December 11 (PM), December 24 (PM), January 22 (AM), March 26 (AM), and May 21 (AM).

IGNITE incorporates our younger musicians through the Wednesday night children’s music curriculum. For more information about ringing, please contact our handbell director, Sandy Martin.
