SKILLS NEEDED: A love of music and a strong desire to share your faith in Christ through music ministry. Excellent organ skills—technical dexterity and accuracy; command of the instrument. A true church organist with service-playing experience; ability to play hymns with proficiency and sensitivity; a passion for music ministry. Piano playing proficiency a plus.
- Organist for Sunday Services at 10:30 AM.
- Provide organ music and any extra rehearsal required for additional special services, such as Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Christmas Eve, etc. We understand that these dates will need to be coordinated with other organist obligations and are for discussion with the Pastor/Worship Committee and pianist.
- Play for weddings and funerals, as needed and as available. Any remuneration for weddings and funerals will be reasonable and customary and will be paid by the family.
- Coordinate any time-off requests with the church pianist as far in advance as possible.
ACCOUNTABILITY: The organist, as a paid casual employee, is under the guidance of the SPRC Committee and should communicate any employment concerns/change requests to the SPRC Chair.
The pastor will provide advanced worship planning. Songs appropriate for the season are found in The United Methodist Music and Worship Planner. The planner contains suggestions for songs which are appropriate for music according to the reading of the day (Old Testament, Psalm, Epistle, and Gospel lessons). The church will provide The United Methodist Music and Worship Planner for the appropriate year from which to access hymns, voluntaries, and anthems.
