Casavant 3394 utilized a small amount of casework and a set of Deagan type A chimes pitched at A-435 from the church's previous pipe organ, but at present, no details about that instrument have surfaced. In May 2017 the organ was purchased by First Christian Church, Bowling Green, Kentucky. It was removed from the now-closed United Presbyterian Church, Shawnee, and put in storage in Knoxville Tennessee by B. Rule & Company. B. Rule will renovate the organ for First Christian beginning in 2018. On its removal, the Casavant was in good playing condition.
