The Worship Ministry
The purpose of the Worship Ministry is to provide stimulating celebration of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ on Sunday mornings. The goal of the worship Ministry is to assist our church family in the exaltation of our Lord through a flowing time of song, testimony, offering, fellowship and the preaching of God’s Word.
The Worship Ministry at COBC includes the CD Ministry, Guest Services, Praise and Worship on Sunday mornings, the Technical Ministry (see below) and Ushers.
In January 2014, Kathy Kelly was hired as the Worship Coordinator to organize and blend the musical and technical aspects of the Sunday morning worship services. She has enjoyed becoming a part of the worship and sound tech teams, and working with the many talented musicians of COBC who have a heart for God and for the music ministry.
The ministry will continue to seek opportunities for more musicians to use their gifts and talents in the service of worship, and will continue to build upon a repertoire of music with a blended style which includes both foundational hymns of the faith as well as contemporary praise music containing strong Biblical truth.
God was glorified through special music this year including our men’s ensemble- the Country Oaks Gospel Singers, a youth strings ensemble, the Christmas Worship Choir, and our Easter choir accompanied by a mini orchestra. If you have musical or technical abilities and would like to serve in the worship ministry, contact Kathy at 661-345-7039. We are seeking additional computer techs, sound techs, musicians, and vocalists.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
