Pipe Organ Refurbisment Program

How to Adopt-A-Pipe

The FUMC Pipe Organ is built into the Sanctuary behind the choir stalls, in the concealed mezzanine. There are over 1200 pipes plus a rank of chimes. These pipes provide voices for traditional pipe sounds, and voices that mimic strings, and brass. Some components of the instrument are over 80 years old and pre-date the current Sanctuary.

With the organ's age comes myriad problems. The intention is to fix all the issues and bring the organ back to original functionality using modern components, plus install some new pipes and extend an existing rank if God provides for that. Church Council and Trustees have approved the quote for repairs at $83,000 and work is scheduled to begin in June.  Donations received above the repair cost will incrementally go towards additional ranks of pipes.  The total cost of the refurbishment and additions is $122,500.

You can "adopt a pipe", or many pipes, at a cost of $100 each.  Regardless of how you choose to donate, you may choose to be named (on the recognition plaque that will be placed in the Sanctuary), or stay anonymous.
