Nice history and review of the church.

Pipe organ looks impressive.  Does it still work?  Do they play it?  I gather if it needs restoration, that is a major expense on its own.  It would be interesting to know how many pipe organs are in Jax and their current state.  Obviously, the largest one is in the Jacoby Symphony Hall.  I believe there is also one at Riverside Presbyterian, if memory serves me correctly, and it has been played for a music series.
