Handbell Ensembles

The Handbell Ensembles of NUMC  provide a unique musical flavor to our worship services and are featured occasionally throughout the year, whether with music selected specifically for one of the ensembles or for instrumental accompaniment. There are two handbell ensembles in which one can participate through Newark United Methodist Church.

The premier handbell ensemble in Delaware, First State Ringers is an auditioned group that grew out of this church’s foray into bells as another form of accompaniment to worship. For more, see the ensemble’s website or NUMC’s community arts programs page.
