St. John Lutheran Church

The organ was designed and built by Charles Hendrickson of St. Peter, Minnesota. Arrangements for the space and layout of the organ were made in the early stages of the design of the building with the Spitznagel Partners, Architects of Sioux Falls.  The organ is arranged with the chorus of principal pipes to the left of center, the flute and mutation pipes to the right of center, and the trumpet pipes projecting horizontal at the center. The large pedal pipes of the 16' Principal are visible at the extreme sides. All of the pipes of the organ are on a pressure of 2 3/4" wind, except for the large pedal pipes which are on 2 1/4" of wind. Assisting in the construction and installation of the organ were Barry Lund, Monte Mason, Peter Monkkonen, John Morlock, John Molloy, Peter Wilson and Bradley Kerns.

In April 2009, a fire in the church created clouds of smoke which covered the entire organ inside and out. The pipes of the organ were cleaned and stored at the church while all of the organ mechanism and wood materials of the original organ were replaced with new. The organ has been enlarged to 12 ranks with 804 pipes. A rededication concert and hymn festival was played by Dr. Jeffrey Blersch from Concordia University, Nebraska on November 13, 2011.
