LUMC is looking for someone who can lead music in a "blended service" - meaning, both contemporary and traditional music. The main focus would be on congregational music in the worship setting.


Additionally, we have two choirs - an ensemble and a handbell choir. The handbell choir practices mid-week, and preforms quarterly. The choral ensemble rehearses mid-week and performs every Sunday; with special performances at Easter and Christmas. Both choirs meet on Wednesday evenings, and the ensemble has a short rehearsal on Sunday mornings.
