SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Church bell ringers from around the U.S. and Canada are in the Carolinas this week doing what they do best.

The bells we're talking about are the ones that hang at the top of church towers.  

They can weigh up to 2 tons.  That's why many churches use electronic chimes.

But a few still require people to use a rope and pulley system to make the melodies play.

7 On Your Side Photojournalist Jason Parker shows us how they're perfecting their craft in the video above.
