Updated through online information from Kyle Arthur. -- The organ for the new church will be the E.M. Skinner, Opus 422. It had originally been shown as being with the American Organ Institute as they were going to do the rebuild. But they closed and never actually possessed the organ. It is currently awaiting rebuilding.
