Part-Time Director of Music
Primary duties are to coordinate, plan and implement a comprehensive music ministry that complements the overall mission and goals of the church. The church music program consists of two Sunday services per week, during which an organist plays. The earlier service also routinely has a soloist, and the later service has a volunteer choir. Our children’s choir also participates regularly in the later service. The church is further interested in revitalizing its handbell and chimes choirs. The Director of Music will report to the Pastor and the Staff-Parish Relations Committee.

Part-Time Organist/Accompanist

Additional responsibilities will include special rehearsals and services throughout the year including Christmas Eve and Lenten services. The ideal candidate will be a flexible team member with a deep understanding of the role of a musician in worship. We believe our Farrand and Votey organ is one of the finest in the nation, having been removed, reworked, and reinstalled by the Reuter Organ Company in 1995-96. A more thorough description of the organ can be found here. We are also blessed to have in the Sanctuary a Steinway & Sons Concert Grand Piano. The Organist/Accompanist will report to the Pastor and Staff-Parish Relations Committee.
