University Lutheran Church in Harvard Square is seeking a musician to help coordinate and lead music for our 9 am family-friendly worship service. The music coordinator will work closely with the pastors and other community members to choose the hymns and songs for the service. They will also work to actively empower members of the community, including children, to lend their emerging gifts and interests to the musical life of the service. Roughly 5 hours/week, at least 2.5 of which will be dedicated to the Sunday service and making community connections afterwards (8:15 – 10:45 am).
In addition to competency on piano/keyboard, the ideal candidate will have a working knowledge of Lutheran liturgical practice, good relational skills, and be comfortable working as part of a team. He or she will also understand that the role of music in this service is chiefly to help form faith and engender broad participation, rather than performance.
University Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America that is open and affirming, including welcoming of GLBTQ folks and families.
