• Chancel Ringers

  • Connection Band

  • New Generation Ringers

  • Wesley Choir



Rehearses Mondays from 6-7 pm, September through May.

The New Generation Ringers is a beginner handbell group that gives HUMC youth (grade 7 and up) and their parents, as well as other interested adults and youth the opportunity to learn to ring together. Members learn the basics of handbell techniques, rhythm, sight-reading, and dynamics in a fun and relaxed environment. Much like a team sport, this group learns to work together and rely on each other, building both musicianship and a close relationship between ringers. Musical experience is a plus, but is not necessary for participation. The New Generation Ringers ring on a monthly basis for the 9 am Sanctuary service as well as participate in Music Ministry concerts.

The group is directed by Shannon Wise, Director of Liturgical Music.
