Grace Lutheran Church, 1827 E. Pacific Ave., is celebrating the renovation and dedication of its pipe organ Sunday at 1 p.m.

After more than 80 years of service at the church, which was built in 1922, the organ’s console finally needed replacing. A new one was found and brought to Spokane from California.

Seattle-area organist Phillip Larson, formerly of Spokane, completed the work and agreed to perform at the dedication ceremony.

Larson has performed in several churches in Spokane and the Seattle area and owns Washington Pipe Organ Service, which cares for pipe organs in Washington, Idaho and Montana. He also refurbished the organ at Lewis and Clark High School.

The 1 p.m. concert will follow the church’s regular Sunday service at 10:30 a.m. and a light lunch in the church basement. Admission is free.
