Wild art: Choirs combine to sound handbells

The talents of First Baptist Church, First Christian Church, First United Methodist Church and New Hope Baptist Church West joined forces to put on a community handbell concert featuring marimbist Richard Herndon. The concert was to help celebrate and raise awareness for Christians Concerned, which turned 50 this year. The attendees were asked to bring a canned good to donate to the food ministry. The nonprofit started as a way to “warehouse” services churches were doing separately to help more people in a more expedited way.
