Why the change?

We have all experienced those times when something completely outside of our control changes things near and dear to our hearts.

We have been ringing Friday Evening Vespers and Saturday Christmas Concerts during the Christmas Town Festival for more than 20 years.

Unfortunately, as the 2014 Christmas Town Festival was opening someone fell on rugs placed at First Church of Bethlehem to protect the floors during the Festival. The individual is now suing the church, the town, and the rug company.

At the recommendations of its attorneys, First Church has withdrawn from the Festival and the building will be closed.
Chime In! is a non-profit organization completely separate from the church and the festival. Our Board of Directors are committed to maintaining a strong sense of community. Therefore, we are working with both the church and the festival to create events that will continue to bring our meaningful music to everyone at this special time of year.

Our new Friday evening handbell event during the Christmas Town Festival will be a combination of seasonal readings and beautiful handbell music.

The following weekend, we will present our traditional Christmas Handbell Concert with a new event developed by First Church. There will be crafts throughout the day along with luncheon sandwiches available before the concert. After the concert, in the traditional of Bells & Berries, the church will offer Apple Pie with all the fixings.
