Notes

  • Identified from factory documents and publications courtesy of Stephen Schnurr. (Database Manager. July 17, 2008)
  • Updated through on-line information from Jeff Scofield. -- The church website said that, in 1996, "the organ moved to the north end of the church." I hope nobody got in its way! (Database Manager. March 29, 2009)
  • Updated through on-line information from Chad Boorsma. -- The sanctuary underwent a significant expansion in 1995-1996 that included moving the altar to the opposite end of the room. The organ was rebuilt, relocated, and expanded during this time by Lauck Pipe Organ Company. (Database Manager. July 29, 2010)
  • Updated through online information from Connor Annable. (Database Manager. October 10, 2011)
