handbell choirs

The Handbell Program at Colts Neck Reformed Church began in 2000 with the purchase of four octaves of handbells. The church currently owns two five-octave sets of bells . We have five handbell choirs beginning with 3rd graders through adults. Each handbell choir rings regularly in worship and also rings in the community during the program year.  Each spring culminates in "A Spring Ring" handbell concert featuring our five choirs.
