Some of the information in the most recent note isn't quite correct. The Nazarene congregation began as "Wildwood Church of the Nazarene" and later changed their name to "Ressurection Community." At some point previous to the Nazarene's purchase of the building, the pipe organ was removed. The Baptist congregation had an Allen organ. The Nazarene congregation used a Hammond H-100. I was their organist from 2007-2008. The only remains of the pipe organ are the facade.

When the Church of the Nazarene purchased the property, the name of the congregation was Resurrection Community Church of the Nazarene. It was later changed to "Wildwood" in recognition of the diverse racially mixed membership. When the building was purchased the console was at the front right side of the platform. In more recent photos it appears the console has been moved further back on the platform, placing it among the praise band instruments rather than being in a prominent position as before.
This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ.

The instrument is located in downtown Kankakee in a historic edifice; the oldest church building in Kankakee County. The original congregation was First Baptist Church, founded in 1865. The Church of the Nazarene acquired the property in 2007. The first floor contains classrooms and fellowship hall, with the sanctuary auditorium on the second floor. The pipe facade is centered on the front sanctuary wall. This is possibly all that remains of the instrument as no console is visible in photos. The Nazarene congregation uses a Praise Band and a projection screen often covers the facade.
