Handbell choirs often ring the prelude and/or offertory during worship. They also accompany various vocal choirs and hymns. Handbell choirs may participate on Palm Sunday, Easter, Christmas and special events. Their outreach efforts have also brought joy to many nursing homes and senior resident centers in the area.

Glen Mar has two adult handbell choirs. Echoes of Joy is an intermediate handbell choir, and Covenant Ringers is an advanced handbell choir, requiring participants to have advanced rhythm reading skills and bell techniques.
