The community is invited to a recital and rededication of the Moller organ Sunday at 3 p.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Funkstown.
The recital will feature local musicians in organ, instrumental and vocal music.
The original Moller organ was installed in the church in 1911. After the church was torn down, the organ was reinstalled in the new church in 1981. The organ was refurbished this past year. There will be light refreshments following the recital and a free will offering will be taken.
