THIS IS NOT the usual – “Hello World!” post

Hello World and WELCOME to my page.  This is the donation page for the ORGAN EXPANSION FUND for MCC IN THE VALLEY – A Church Alive.  Keep reading for information about me and about this project.  You will find the Donation Button to the right hand side, just below the search bar.  We are asking for a $1.00 donation, however if you feel led to donate more to the project, we will certainly be extremely grateful for any amount you wish to give.  At the very bottom of this post is a link to a YouTube clip of me playing Onward Christian Soldiers on our existing pipe organ.

Below is my picture (holding Conrad the Koala) , directly underneath is our current 4 rank pipe organ, and below that the console for the new organ we will be purchasing.

My name is Paul Allison and I have been the organist at Metropolitan Community Church in the Valley – A Church Alive – since its formation in 1973.  A couple of years ago, we acquired a small 4 rank unenclosed pipe organ – which is a tremendous addition to the music of our worship services.  Because it is only four ranks, however, there is a limitation to the number of sounds which I can coax from the instrument, and I have determined that the solution to this problem is to purchase the top of the line 4 manual Rodgers Digital Organ  (picture directly above) and couple it to the existing pipe organ.

This is where YOU come into the picture.  Since I don’t have enough money of my own to make this purchase – (total will be about $200,000.00 including installation and connection to the existing pipe organ) – I need to ask for help from all of you out there that would like to be mini-philanthropists.  If everyone viewing this site donates just one dollar, then emails everyone they know and asks them to do the same, we can make this go viral and the results will be spectacular.  Once I get 200,000 people to donate at least ONE DOLLAR each, we will have the funds needed to proceed and the ONE DOLLAR MIRACLE will have happened.

If you would like to make a large enough donation that you need a receipt and want it to be tax deductible, please go to http://www.mccinthevalley.com , click on the MAKE A DONATION button just below the top menu line and enter the amount of your donation.  Once completed, please email us at mccvalley@yahoo.com, and let us know you have just donated to the Organ Expansion Fund, and we will send you a receipt for your records.

If you wish more information, please call the church office at 818-762-1133, leave your name and telephone number, and a request for me to call you, and I will be notified to call you and give you the information you need.  Also, I have placed a signup form on this page for a newsletter I will be sending out with progress reports and notifications of future musical events, and I would urge you to join that list so we can keep in touch with you.

God Bless each and every one of you, and thanks for helping to make this music miracle happen.

Paul
