Installation Service

Installation Service

On Sunday, October 12, 2014  at both worship services, we will be celebrating the constancy of God’s Word at COBC. Dr. Greg Behle, our interim pastor prior to Andy Walker and currently Professor of Christian Education at Master’s College, will be here to help us exalt Christ, the Living Word and Head of the Church, by honoring Pastor Andy Walker for 23 years of faithful preaching, installing Pastor Brent Whitney in his new position as Senior Pastor, and charging Pastor Nathan Hiner and Pastor Walker in their new roles as Associate Pastor and Pastor Emeritus. It will be a time to praise God for all He has accomplished through the ministry of the Word at COBC. Lunch will be served on the church grounds immediately following the second service. Please help us celebrate this event with cards of appreciation and encouragement for our pastors. Cards can be dropped off at the office.

Technical Ministries – Help Wanted!


Help Wanted  – The Sound Tech ministry needs more workers. Please pray that volunteers will come forward and will be able to be trained.  Also, for current workers to not grow weary. Contact Kathy Kelly, Worship Coordinator at  or text 661-345-7039 if you would like to step up and help.

It was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be pastors and teachers, to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.  (NIV)    Ephesians 4:11-12


Join our ministry and shape the way we listen. Make a joyful noise to the Lord. Whether you are an experienced veteran or just interested in learning, you are wanted. God made us to serve; Come and make sound happen!


Accent our church with light. Create smooth lighting transitions as we worship and bring life to dramatic plays and programs. Experienced or not you will bless our church.


Inform our church of all the things God is doing in our body. Create PowerPoint slides that are creative and informative.  Lead us in worship by displaying the words we sing. Present our Pastors notes during the sermon. Think this sounds difficult? We do it everyday on our home computers. Come and serve your Lord!


Create worship backgrounds and graphics that rock our church.  Let God tap that creative talent.


Do you have an eye for the perfect shot? Do you follow your family around with a video camera?  Join our ministry to film and edit memorable moments of our church. Create church commercials that inspire us all.


Do you have a talent in any of things mentioned so far? Can you provide professional experience to create excellence in this ministry?  Then tell us how!
