Julia Norton’s Retirement Handbell concert
Julia Norton is retiring after 37 years of being the Handbell and Chime Director at AUMC. This free concert will feature all her choirs.
“Few people in the history of Auburn UMC have left the kind of legacy that Julia Norton has. For 37 years, she has selflessly given of herself to bring the beauty of music and led others to share their God-given gifts in service to their church through music ministry. To have volunteered passionately and selflessly in the capacity of directing our entire handbell program for this many years has been an amazing gift to our church and impacted the lives of untold hundreds of participants as well as the worship life of our congregation while growing the ministry to be one of the largest in the Southeastern United States. What a witness she has been for the selfless love of Jesus and commitment to Christian service. We love you and thank you, Julia.” Gary Klarenbeek, Director of Music
