Database Manager on November 19, 2018:

Updated by Gavin Klein, who has heard or played the organ.

The organ is located in the loft of the church. It was once interfaced with the church-s Rodgers Electric Organ at one time, but no longer does due to maintenance issues, so now it-s speaks on its own. It is in need of some repairs, but works very well.
