*Links:

The church's old Website is not accessible to the public.  It had a tiny drawing of the building in the lower left corner of most pages, but said nothing about the chime.  However, there was a photo of the belfry and spire on the history page.
The church's new Website mentions these bells on a "building and Grounds" page (under About Us), and pictures the building on a "Past and Present" page in the same place.
