The congregation disbanded in 2020 and the property was sold to another congregation who did not want the organ. The organ was removed in 2020 by the Pipe Organ Foundation of Mercer Island, Washington assisted by organ builder Tim Drewes. It will be relocated to one of two Catholic Seminary chapels in Palo, The Philippines.
The organ was originally built for St. Jakobi Lutheran Church in Allison, Iowa. It was moved some years later to the new church building for St. James Lutheran (St. Jakobi, Anglicized). The church contracted for a new organ in 1975, and the Hinners was sold to Mr. Ray Whipple of Waterloo, Iowa and placed in storage. While still in storage, it was again offered for sale and was purchased by the Vereinigte Deutschsprachige Kirche (German U.C.C.) of Seattle throguh the Organ Clearing House of Harrisville, New Hampshire. It was installed by Randall J. McCarty, organist of the church, and replaced an electronic substitute. Mr. McCarty had to narrow the case and alter the facade. The 8' Aeoline was also replaced with a 4' Principal from a Hinners built for a church in Spokane, Washington. The drawknobs are still labeled as Aeoline Bass and Aeoline Treble.
The 12 bass notes of the 8' Viola d'Gamba are grooved from the 8' Liebl Gedackt Bass. The 8' Open Diapason is the only non-expressive manual rank. It has 27 zinc basses, 19 of which are in the facade and operated by tubular-pneumatic action.
