The work of the Church is MISSION ...
and a powerful enabler of missions is
Consider this: Mission Central enables churches to engage in local, national, and global missions by providing resources (material and know-how), response to disasters, and education. Mission Central's mission is to connect God's resources with human need. It does so because the church (yes, us!) takes its call seriously to "strengthen the faint-hearted, support the weak, help the afflicted," and serve a world in need in the name of Jesus Christ.
The Bishop's Partners in Mission initiative has a two-part objective. One objective s to save lives by raising funds for Imagine No Malaria; the other objective is to raise funds to help Mission Central pay off its huge mortgage. By enabling Mission Central to pay off this burden that is hanging over its head (pun intended), you will free Mission Central to be even more effective in reaching out and working with the church by providing more resources, greater capacity to respond to disasters, and to educate us on being more effective in our mission as Christ's hands and feet.

TWO POSITIONS OPEN AT ELM PARK UMC, SCRANTON
Elm Park United Methodist Church, 712 Linden St., Scranton,
PA, is seeking a part-time director of music and part-time organist for our church, beginning September 1, 2016. A brief description of each position follows:
Part-Time Director of Music
Primary duties are to coordinate, plan, and implement a comprehensive music ministry that complements the overall mission and goals of the church. The church music program consists of two Sunday services per week, during which an organist plays. The earlier service also routinely has a soloist, and the later service has a volunteer choir. Our children's choir also participates regularly in the later service. The church is further interested in revitalizing its handbell and chimes choirs. The director of music will report to the pastor and the staff-parish relations committee.
Primary duties are to play the organ during the 11 a.m. Sunday worship service, and to play during choir rehearsals that are held one day a week, from Labor Day through Memorial Day. Additional responsibilities will include special rehearsals and services throughout the year including Christmas Eve and Lenten services. The ideal candidate will be a flexible team member with a deep understanding of the role of a musician in worship. We believe our Farrand and Votey organ is one of the finest in the nation, having been removed, reworked, and reinstalled by the Reuter Organ Company in 1995-96. For a more thorough description of the organ, CLICK HERE. We are also blessed to have in the sanctuary, a Steinway & Sons Concert Grand Piano. The organist/accompanist will report to the pastor and staff-parish relations committee.
