Jeff Scofield on July 09, 2021:

The organ was originally installed in 1972 in the church's new sanctuary at their former downtown location. That building was sold to the local government and the congregation moved to the present location in 1989, with the Schlicker installed in the gallery in a new case. Phil Parkey installed a new console in 2005. In 2019, R A Colby renovated the organ, adding a new console and Walker digital stops.
