On August 11, we used our Walker Technical Organ for the first time in our Sanctuary worship services. This 167-rank, digitally reproduced Aeolian-Skinner organ is a one-of-a-kind instrument that is to be celebrated! We will dedicate this worship instrument to the glory of God with a series of events on Sunday, September 29 with guest artist, Samuel Metzger. You will not want to miss these exceptional events that will be not only a celebration for our church, but also a musical gift to the Roanoke Valley.
