Murray Hill United Methodist Church is a congregation located in one of the most diverse parts of Jacksonville, Florida.

Our morning worship service follows the traditional hymns and liturgies.

Our current order of worship includes three congregational hymns and two anthems led by the choir.

He or she must uphold the basic tenants of faith as well as the doctrines of the United Methodist Church. He or she must have a love of music and a desire to utilize this passion to connect others to their faith. As a leader of the choir, this person would also lead this group of people and support them in their talent, faith and lives. He or she must be able to play the piano and would ideally be able to play the organ as well. The director of traditional worship will remain accountable to the pastor and the staff parish relations committee (SPRC) in their job and responsibilities.
