Handbell Director

Cheryl Waide

As director of the CUMC Handbell Ministry, I have the lovely privilege of working weekly with fourteen enthusiastic ringers to prepare music for ringing in Sunday worship services.  Our focus is to present our best efforts to God and enhance the worship experience.

It was late in my career as pianist, piano teacher and church organist that I discovered the joy of ringing English Handbells.  I have had the opportunity to attend and study the art of Handbell ringing at various workshops and symposiums and now 'in retirement' as director. Handbells are truly a passion of mine and for the ringers as well, as we share this ministry.

I feel blessed to be a part of the Handbell program at CUMC and also to serve as accompanist for the Sanctuary Choir. 

The scripture verse in Psalm 118:14 continues to resonate with me:  
“The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.”
