Dear members of Immanuel and Handbell Choir,
Besides knowing Jesus, directing handbells has been the joy of my life these 29 years. It has been very rewarding to choose a piece of music, and have you the players interpret it, to exalt our Lord and Savior. Though my spirit is willing, my body signals are telling me that it is time to quit. After prayerful consideration, I have decided to retire from directing handbells, Ringers of Joy and Youthful Ringers, beginning August 1, 2010. To you my handbell players, I thank you for your dedication and support and for making practicing and playing such a pleasant experience. I hope that if a new director is found, you will continue using your talents. As I stated, I will discontinue teaching bell choir in the school also. Thank you, Immanuel, for making the handbells available for us to play.
In Christ who deserves all glory and praise,
Marie Zehnder
