First Baptist Church hosts first hand bell concert
West Tennesse churches perform in Handbell festival
JACKSON, Tenn. — Churches from all over West Tennessee gathered for the first ever hand bell concert. About 70 performers filled the fellowship hall at First Baptist Church for the show.
“I just invited the hand bell choirs to come and we chose the music several months ago so everyone had a chance to look at it,” said organizer Betsy Porter. “And then we got together this morning practiced and had a concert this afternoon.”
Because of the great turnout, the hand bell choirs are looking forward to their next concert.
