Organ tours

May 2, 2017

Kids from JAM, the Wednesday night music experience, got a tour of the organ March 22.  They got a close look at the keyboard, saw individual organ pipes up close, and visited the room that houses the pipes.

On April 2 the same tour was offered after church. Assistant organists Josh Peterson (right) and Parker Hinnenkamp (above) led the tours.
