Memorial and Gift Program for our Carl Barckhoff Organ
A Memorial is an Expression of Love and Thanksgiving
Our 1891 Carl Barckhoff organ is one of only a few extant examples of this magnificent instrument. In 2005 we rebuilt our organ to near new to allow for another 100 years of beautiful musical service. We provided everyone with an opportunity to participate in various naming opportunities to provide special recognition for a family member, friends, or you. It is our sincere hope that by providing name recognition this will allow individuals and families to remember loved ones and pool family funds.
In honor of everyone who gives, they will have their name or the individual they designated entered into the Memorial and Gift Book which is displayed in the vestibule of our church. It will be annotated in the Memorial and Gift Book that you sponsored a pipe. Each pipe can be sponsored at $250.00 each. We will also prepare a certificate for you (see sample at the stand by the donor wall in the vestibule of the church). You may wish to sponsor a rank of pipes ($5,000), Swell ($15,000), or Pedal ($15,000) for family, friends, or yourself and have their name or designated name annotated on the plaque in the vestibule of our church. Monies received are for maintenance and future repairs of our historic organ.
Those wishing to contribute to our care of this organ, or memorialize a loved one, will find brochures and envelopes in the vestibule by the memorial stand. Thank you to all who have helped preserve the treasures we have received.
