MUSIC & THE ARTS

Figgy Pudding Bell Ring | December 9 & 10 | 2pm

On June 22, 2018 the Elim Ringtones will go to Rochester MN for the Area VII convention of Hand Bell Ringers of America. At the convention we attend rehearsals, classes and concerts. The rehearsals are in preparation for the final concert which is at 2:00 Sunday June, 24. The concert is free and open to the public, so it would be a nice outing to drive down to Rochester to hear 400 hand bell ringers all playing at the same time. For more info, contact Richard Balkus.

To help finance our trip we invite you to our Figgy Pudding Bell Ring. On Saturday, December 9 at 2:00pm, and on Sunday, December 10, at 2:00pm we will play a concert of Christmas music and serve a variety of scrumptious, delicious, decadent desserts.  We will perform a variety of Christmas music that you will enjoy. This will be a freewill event, no tickets required. So, just come either day and enjoy the Elim Ringtones, coffee and dessert.

 

Elim’s choirs and musicians play an important role in enriching the worship experience of our whole community.
