Skinner Organ & Co. bouwde in 1932 een nieuw pitmanladen-orgel met elektrische tractuur voor de First Congregational Church in Los Angeles (California) USA. Dit zijn het Chancel en Transept-Orgel. Schlicker breidde het orgel in 1969 uit met het West Gallery Organ en het Italienischen Werk. M.P. Möller Company plaatste in 1992 2 nieuwe vijfmanualige speeltafels. Destijds de grootste speeltafels ter wereld. David & Zeiler (USA) breidde het orgel tussen 1994 en 2004 uit. Ook voerden zij reparaties uit. Er is een uitbreiding van het Ethereal-orgel gepland door Zeiler. Hoe de werkzaamheden er nu voor staan is onbekend.
