At the earlier service, the pastor's wife, a pianist, sometimes plays the pipe organ.
"Not as many people are learning how to play the organ now," said Charles McCane, 78, another church member who helped construct the organ and is familiar with its history. "I hope they're not a dying breed, but they are slowing down."
Jerry Lilly, Raines and McCane all helped put together the organ, which was designed by Hurricane resident Allen Harrah.
"He has built other organs in the area, but wanted to leave his legacy here," said Karen Lilly. "A lot of people were praying we'd get an organ for a long time."
The church raised a huge portion of the money needed for the organ and it made its debut after the sanctuary was remodeled in 2001.
As Jerry Lilly, McCane and Raines stood Thursday looking up at the many pipes around the room, they expressed pride in the organ.
"Many people grew up hearing one at church," McCane said.
"We touched all of the pipes, we had to wear white gloves," said Raines.
"We've all got college degrees, but not in carpentry," said Jerry Lilly, drawing laughter from the others.
Karen Lilly said she hopes a younger generation will discover a love of organ music.
"There's a conception only older people will enjoy the organ, and that's not true," she said. "It's a great thing for everyone to enjoy."
