So much to do! So little time to do it! Things are happening at KUC! Time to bring everyone up to date for the summer.
As you know our organ has given all it has to give and is no longer able to be repaired. We thank it for its many years of service. It is up to the congregation to decide what to do next. In the fall there will be a chance for everyone to weigh in on the next steps we take on this and other ideas.
It is hard to know what we have been missing as our organ has been going down hill for a long time. The Allen distributor has offered to place an organ in the sanctuary for a period of approximately two months so that we can test it out. We will be able to hear the capabilities of this modern instrument. Please enjoy the opportunity to hear this lovely organ. We look forward to your comments. This loaner organ will appear in the sanctuary very soon. (Florence, Marg W).
