Become an Organ Donor Today!

Music is an important, vital ministry of our church. A quality music program enhances the worship service, brings people into the church, and is often one of the reasons they stay to worship with us. We want the best music program we can offer at each of our worship services and to our community through concerts and special events.

For some time now we have been aware of a critical need to replace our organ at St. Anne's. Our current instrument was built from various components, and the console—the part of the organ where our organist sits, and that controls everything—is reaching the end of its useful life. The present two-manual organ is actually undersized for our space and does not have the capabilities to grow with our music program.

We will be replacing our organ with a digital console with the ability to, in the future hook up to our existing pipes.This is something that many churches throughout the country—both small and large—are now doing. The cost of installing a new console, amplifiers and hidden speakers for the digital voices is a fraction of what it would cost to install a new console with equivalent pipes. In the last five years, sound sampling technology—recording pipe organs throughout the world and digitally sampling the separate sounds for reproduction—has improved to the point where most people cannot tell the difference between pipes and well-engineered digital voices. It is important to note that we are not removing any of our existing pipes and plan on reconnecting the pipes in the future.

The cost is just over $76,000, and we need your support! Please consider being an “Organ Donor” today!
