OUR NEW PIPE ORGAN
Let’s Rejoice and Give Thanks!
A NEW DAY A NEW SONG
After fifty-plus years from our current organ, we are excited to look to our next chapter with our new organ currently being constructed in Germany. This is an exciting chapter for FUMC of Marietta as we continue to seek God’s calling of reaching people for Christ. We know that our worship, along with this organ, plays a role in living out our mission as a church.
Here are a few facts about the new organ:
+ Glatter Goetz of Germany will build the organ, and construction will take approximately 24 months.
+ The organ will have 2,976 pipes, 44 stops, and 55 ranks.
+ The design will feature open organ chambers, displaying pipes behind the podiums and openings facing the choir seating.
+ Estimated completion: Summer of 2020.
We ask everyone to prayerfully consider your gift towards the lasting legacy of our new pipe organ. We know that this organ is our honoring of God in worship, and we ask everyone to pray and seek God’s direction in giving towards this organ and its impact on future generations.
