Orginally had 11 ranks and 9 stops. In 1961, the interior of the church was completely restored - the steel ceiling removed and the ceiling replastered, floors refinished and walls painted and new pews installed. The interior plan was changed from two aisles dividing the church into thirds, to a center aisle and one on each side. The organ loft was enlarged to meet the needs of a choir and organ. The following year a new organ was given by Jane W. Newhall in memory of her mother.
