Montview Church’s organ dates from 1957, when the congregation’s present sanctuary was constructed. The Reuter Organ Company of Lawrence, Kansas, built the organ according to specifications of Franklin Mitchell. The main console, located in the rear gallery, controls the main organ and the chancel organ. A smaller console in the chancel controls just the chancel organ. In 2001 the organ was renovated and the rear console was replaced. The Denver firm of Morel and Associates did the work.

Montview also owns a small portable organ with four stops. This small instrument is used in Barrett Chapel. The instrument also functions well as a continuo instrument with orchestra in the main sanctuary. Morel and Associates built this instrument.
