Bell overachiever

When Michael Kohn, director of the bell choir at Zion Lutheran Church, Lexington, S.C., was invited to ring the Salvation Army bell at a grocery store during the Christmas season, he brought an entire handbell choir.

"What's fun is to see the smile on people's faces when they walk in," Kohn told a local TV station. "It's always a look of surprise. People may not be expecting anything, but if they are it's just a little bell. ... When they come in and hear the full handbell choir it's a real sense of surprise for them."

I am a member of this bell choir.  Michael is an excellent director and he is very creative in what he does.  This has been great publicity for Zion Lutheran Church in Lexington, South Carolina.

I'm also a member of the Zion Lutheran Handbell Choir.  Michael Kohn has tried to involved us in a variety of things and we are pleased that so many members of the bell choir were able to ring for the Salvation Army.

I'm the Pastor @ Zion Lutheran Church and I am proud of how our bell choir sees its role in evangelism.  You go, Michael "the Arc Angel" Kohn.
