Job Description: 

Zion Lutheran Church in Portland, CT is seeking a new part-time organist. 5-10 hours per week. Chief responsibilities of the position involve playing the organ on Sundays and on other Holy Days established at the beginning of the church year. Other paid optional activities include weddings and funerals as needed.

Involvement in the Worship and Music Committee is required as this group of church members plans the hymns and services based on the church season. At this time the predominant need is for an organist but other activities, negotiable, could include establishing a church choir and other church music related activities. This position requires the ability to play both piano and organ, and ability to collaborate with people in a pleasant manner. The congregation is a small, devoted group of people with much enthusiasm about the liturgical music.

Our church has the following musical instruments: Moller pipe organ, Opus 7868, the primary instrument that leads worship (12 Ranks, 21 stops, 2 manuals & pedal, 8 general pistons); a Young Chang baby-grand piano also in the sanctuary; an Ahlborn-Galanti organ “Angelus model” in our air-conditioned fellowship hall and a Yamaha digital keyboard for use in any part of our church building.
