(back) Subject: Need Church Organist, Fairfield. OH From: "Bob Kinner" <rkinner@one.net> Date: Wed, 28 Feb 2001 21:17:15 -0500   In early January, our church's orgainst was killed in an automobile accident. We are looking for someone to fill the position.   We are a Disciples of Christ congregation with a traditional worship sevice. The church is located in Fairfield Township, close to both Hamilton and Fairfield, Ohio and is easily accessable from the northern greater Cincinnati area. Regular duties include one Sunday morning worship service (prelude, offertory, four hymns, choir anthem, and incidental music) and Wednesday evening choir rehersal. Occasional special services. One of our members is an organist (who does not want a continuing position), so a sub is readily available should an occasional need arise. We have a two-manual Allen, to which eight ranks of pipes are now being added.   Please pass the word around. If interested, please contact our choir director, Garey Carson, at GareyCarsn@AOL.com.   Thanks, Bob -- Bob Kinner AA8FH rkinner@one.net "If at first you don't succeed, switch to power tools."
