Jim Stettner on November 24, 2020:

This organ was originally built for the congregation's previous edifice on Camp Bowie Blvd. The new (present) facility is smaller than the previous, so the former 2006 Ross King sanctuary organ was sold to another local church. The 1994 Ross King chapel instrument was relocated to the new worship space.
