FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH MEDFIELD WELCOMES/WESTWOOD RINGERS CHRISTMAS CONCERT
FBC Medfield is so excited to bring this program to Medfield. Please join us on Saturday, Dec. 1st at 7:30pm and “ring” in the Christmas Spirit.
The program will include both traditional carols and secular Christmas music, and is designed to appeal to the entire family. A few of the selections to be rung are “O Holy Night,” the French carol “He Is Born,” “Caroler’s Hoedown,” “Jingle Bell Rock” and “The Skater’s Waltz.”
The Westwood Ringers is a group of eleven adults who ring handbell music on a set of sixty-one tuned bronze bells and forty-nine hand chimes. They have performed many concerts in the Boston area since originally formed in 1965. In addition, the group has taken three European concert tours – to England in 1999, to Germany and Austria in 2002, and to Ireland in 2005.
The ringers, who come from Westwood, Dedham, Norwood and Walpole, include Vickie DeVoy, Julie Folsom, Kitty Keller, Wendy Lewis, Donna Metcalf, Chrissie Murray, Judith Murray, Ann Neville, Elizabeth Rice, Paula Scoble and Terry Whetstone. The group is directed by Marilyn Downes, Director of Music at the First Baptist Church Westwood.

More About First Baptist Church of Medfield
First Baptist Church is a loving, biblically centered, multigenerational church family that seeks to faithfully proclaim the good news of gospel, bring people into relationship with Christ, and live faithfully as people that pour out His love while living for His glory.
Pastor Jonathan Chechile says the church does this, "because of the grace that He has showed each one of us through the gospel. On the Cross, Christ died for us. The Gospel meets us at our life's core, sets us free from the power of sin and death, and gives us the strength to live lives of love and service to others."
On Sunday morning, First Baptist gathers to worship at 10:30am. The church seeks to bring all ages into worship as a family. There is a blend of traditional and contemporary music – "all lifted up to the glory and praise of God," followed by the preaching of God’s word and Sunday School.
