This beautiful pipe organ in the choir loft was built by Art Schmeltekopf. Art was an atmospheric scientist retired from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, but he had a great love of music and particularly organ music. He began building the organ while he worked at NOAA in Boulder.

Otto Hoffman, an organ builder in Austin, Texas, was the consultant for the project and pipes and console were ordered from Germany in 1965. Art began building the first wind chests in his basement and by fall much of the organ had been set up in his garage. With the help of many church members the organ was dedicated in 1967. The organ has a mechanical action? with 2 manuals and pedals, 39 ranks of pipes. There are 31 stops on the console and food pedals.
