Description

We are seeking a substitute musician to play piano or organ for the spring and summer months while our regular musician is unavailable. We are open both to an ongoing substitute position or on a week-to-week basis that adapts to your own availability. First Presbyterian Church of Lapeer is located in downtown Lapeer, Michigan and is the oldest church in the Lake Huron Presbytery. We worship in a beautiful gothic-style church with ornate woodwork and stained glass surrounding the sanctuary. Our style of worship is traditional and includes music that is meant to enhance the beauty of meaning of worship. Music is performed on our pipe organ and our grand piano, and hymns are selected from the Presbyterian hymnal “Glory to God”. We have a choir that meets weekly and sings an anthem at Sunday services 3 times per month. We also have a hand bell choir that plays on Sundays 1 time per month. The church organist/accompanist works together with the pastor and the director of music each week to plan music worship for the Sunday service.

Requirements

1. Must be able to play piano to accompany the choir during weekly rehearsals and Sunday morning service. Organ skills are desirable but not necessary. 2. Must be able to play hymns to accompany the congregation during congregational singing at services on Sunday morning. We can provide copies of our hymnal music. 3. Must be available for 1 hour weeknight rehearsal with the choir. Currently the choir meets at 6pm on Wednesdays, but the rehearsal night and time are flexible to meet the needs of a qualified candidate. 4. Must be available Sunday mornings from 9:45 a.m.-12:00 p.m. for warm-up with the choir and the church service. 5. Must be able to work alongside the choir director and pastor to collaborate for effective and meaningful music ministry on Sunday morning.
