Installed in old downtown building; congregation moved to Garland Dr. location in 1971 and Möller rebuilt and enlarged the organ to 3/38 as Op. R-823 and moved the organ to the new location; the work also included a new Great division, 2 new Choir stops and 1 new Pedal stop; new console by Cannarsa in 1985; renovated in 2007 by SDG Organs, at which time Buch Church Organ Co. added a new Walker console and added digital stops.
