As a result of a two year fundraising campaign, church members and friends gifted the funds to purchase and dedicate the Steinway B grand piano in July, 2016. It was dedicated in recital later that year by Dr. Dror Biran, Associate Professor of Piano at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
