Jim Stettner on December 29, 2021:

The church closed and the building was sold to a Pentacostal congregation in the spring of 2021. They do not want the organ. On Facebook's 'Wisconsin Organ Scene' on December 29, 2021, Admin. Ryan Mueller announced that if a home for the organ was not found within two weeks, the organ would be consigned to the dumpster.

Stephen Russell is aware of the circumstances and in-touch with the pastor. As a 'last resort' if nothing else comes to fruition, he hopes to take his crew and rescue the organ.
