Exciting News!  The ODPC Handbell Choir has a new name – ODPC Praise in Motion

Please welcome Linda Downes, a new member of ODPC, as Director of the Handbell Ministry!

Linda has directed handbells for over 35 years and is eager to work with our ringers in providing a ministry that brings glory to God in a unique and fun way.  And, thanks to a very generous donation, we have extended the number of handbells, providing an extra challenge to our ringers as well as a fuller sound to the listeners!

The ODPC Handbell Choir provides service music throughout the year in the Traditional Worship Service on Sundays at 11:00am, as well as in special worship services, for church ministries such as Hope’s Kitchen, and additional opportunities in the community.  The Handbell Ensemble, which consists of fewer ringers, plays for seasonal services such as Maundy Thursday and Christmas Eve services.

If you have previous handbell experience, or can read music, and are interested in learning how you can be a part of this exciting ministry, contact Linda Downes at ldownes4@gmail.com, or the church office at 843-249-2312.

Rehearsals are on Wednesdays from 5-6pm, September through May, in the handbell room, which is adjacent to the choir room.
