6th Annual "Bells on the Hill" brings hundreds to CRCDS

On Sunday, December 13, 2015, several hundred visitors filled the Samuel Colgate Memorial Chapel for the 6th Annual CRCDS "Bells on the Hill."

One of the most popular events at CRCDS brought new and old friends together and included the singing of Christmas carols, ringing of the Tower Bells, and a special moment of silence and tolling of the bells, dedicated to victims of violence in our world. Rev. Diane Bogues, Student Recruiter at CRCDS, recited the poem, "For Our World" by 11-year old Mattie Stepanek.
