Our Music Director has announced her
intention to retire at year’s end and a committee has been formed to determine
how the Church will replace this position. We are looking at both a long term
and short term approach to fill this position.
COSLC is a congregation of approximately 300 with a great
love for the music ministries. There is a standard choir, a contemporary praise
band, a chime choir, several gifted musicians that contribute to the ministry,
and we also host concerts with well-known gospel groups.
As part of this effort we are exploring
the local communities we serve to see if there are individuals with experience
that may wish to be considered either short term until a replacement is found
or to fill our long term role. If you are not close to us you should know that
Loudon is a quaint town approximately 20 miles southwest of
the great city of Knoxville. It is a great place to live and/or retire. The
weather is wonderful year-round and there are several terrific communities if
you wish to move here. Beautiful lakes for boating activities, many golf
courses, are right here and everything is on the doorstep of the Smokey Mountains.
Skills we are looking for include
to play the organ, piano, clavinova during Church Services ( 2 every Sunday)
and familiar with Church hymns particularly from the Lutheran Missouri Synod
and conducting a choir to sing traditional and contemporary pieces (September –
and conducting a chime choir. (September – June)
A degree in Church music or past
experience in leading and accompanying Lutheran service worship is especially
desired but not limiting.
If you possess all or part of these qualifications and this is something that
interests you then please contact either the Church Office at 865-458-9407 or
Carl Noble at 423-884-2048.
