An effort is currently underway to help our PUMC handbell choir obtain a 5th octave in our bell arsenal. Most handbell music is written for five-octave choirs, while we remain at 4 octaves. The approximate cost of the 5th octave is $15,000. Some money is currently available in the Music Ministry fund for handbells. Additional support is welcomed and appreciated as our handbell leader, Darlene Skinner, and others seek to make the 5th octave a reality here at PUMC, so that they can continue to play for the Glory of God.
