Aug. 5 at 7:30 PM on the newly installed Moller organ.   Program was;   Prelude and Fugue in C Major, BWV 545 Bach   Congregational Hymn #172 "Crown Him With Many Crowns" Diademata   Two American Hymn Preludes David Kvernstoen " 'Tis A Gift To Be Simple" " Sweet Hour of Prayer"   Beautiful Savior Christiansen-Cassler   Passacaglia in d Minor Dietrich Buxtehude   Prelude on Evan Garth Edmunson (The Lord's My Shepherd)   Fugue in E Flat (St. Anne), BWV 552 Bach   [ Dedication of Organ, Pastor Carlson ]   Three Twentieth Century German Choral Preludes Helmut Walcha "A Mighty Fortress Is Out God" "If Thow But Suffer God To Guide Thee" "In Bethlehem's Low Stable"   Prelude on Rhosymedre Ralph Vaughan Williams   Earth And All Stars David N. Johnson-Michael Burkhardt   Congregation Hymn #292 "The Church's One Foundation" Aurelia   Toccata on Now Thank We All Our God Egil Hovland [ lunch was served ]   Organist David Kvernstoen received a standing ovation for his outstanding performance.   The Congregations singing was just great.   We had a nice crowd of about 130 people attend in spite on the heat wave. =   The church has air conditioning, but not everyone knows that.   The organ is a 1926 Moller 13 rank 2MP. It took me more than a year to get it repaired, computerized and installed. Johnson Organ Co. of Fargo was consultant and a big help. I had some volunteer help from members of the church and other friends. Thanks also for the advice I have recieved from members of this list.   All in all it was a great evening.   Luther
