Do you like directing an adult church choir? Sanford United Methodist Church is looking for you! We have a 10:30 am worship service on Sunday mornings and our choir needs a part time choir director. This is a 4-5 hour per week position with salary appropriate to your experience. Choir practice is every Wednesday from 6-7 pm and we sing twice a month in worship.

We are looking for a choir director who reads music, who can choose appropriate music, organize, teach and direct the choir during rehearsals and as we sing in worship. If you play an instrument, that is a bonus!
