About the new Lively Fulcher pipe organ at Community Church:
The largest instrument ever built by renowned builder Lively-Fulcher, regarded by organ connoisseurs as one the finest organ builders in the Country and the first built by the firm in the State.
Among the finest instruments of its kind in the United States, likely bringing national attention to our community and region, with inquiries about the organ already received from across the country.
Unusual in project scope as the organ builder also built the choir loft, chancel wood paneling, chancel doors, liturgical chairs and worship furniture (pulpit, lectern and altar).
An ingenious, retractable choir loft design provides flexibility for the diverse events hosted at Community Church. Designed to excel in three major roles: worship leader, eclectic recital organ and instrument capable of playing organ-orchestra literature.
