. “Through the gifts and hard work of many people, our sanctuary is blessed with a custom pipe organ, built in the traditional style by Johannes Klais Orgelbau GmbH & Co., in Bonn, Germany. The organ was built at Klais’ German workshop in 1985, disassembled and shipped to the United States, then reassembled on site in 1986. The organ is currently undergoing restoration after 30 years of use.” (Submitted on May 24, 2017.)
