"Y.O.U.T.H" - Yielding to the Lord through Christian Outreach in Unity and Teaching youth to Honor God through biblical education, Christian fellowship, and worship!"
“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity. Until I get there, focus on reading the Scriptures to the church, encouraging the believers, and teaching them” (1 Timothy 4:12-13 NLT).
The Student Ministry mission is to impart the teachings of faith through outreach, worship and prayer, biblical education, Christian fellowship events and activities that appeal to youth while encouraging them to be faithful followers of Jesus Christ.
Our desire is that God would bring about a change in the hearts and lives of our YOUTH! A change that can only come through an intimate, personal relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus Christ.
We meet at the Bernard Buhl Worship Center sanctuary.

Married Couples' Ministry
Reverend Arthur Wright and Sister Sonja Wright, Ministry Leaders
"Marriage is such a powerful way to display the gospel for the glory of God."
Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones (Ephesians 5:22, 28 & 30 NKJV).
The purpose of this ministry is to help develop God-honoring marriages through the word of God in scripture, consistent prayer and the hard work of both husband and wife. Scripture tells us, "In all labor there is profit..." (Proverbs 14:23 NKJV).
Come join us to study God's Word about marriage on the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the OWBC main sanctuary.

To glorify God by extending a warm welcome to every person entering His House.
"Share with the Lord's people who are in need. Practice hospitality" (Romans 12:13 NIV).
The first impressions of a house of God are made in the first few minutes of entering the doors. The role of the greeter is to create that warm and inviting atmosphere. We provide a warm WELCOME to all that enter into any service or event where God can be magnified. This welcoming ministry is designed to make all guests and members feel welcome with a smile and hug. We provide visitors’ packets and hand out information to members as needed. Although a greeter’s love should be no stronger than is the love found in the rest of the body of Christ, nevertheless the greeter performs a major role in ensuring that people see and experience that love. In Christ, you have received God’s unconditional love, and, in Christ, you are called to extend that same unconditional love to others.
We welcome members and guests for each Sunday morning service and during special events as needed.
There is no gender or age-specific requirement as we accept active youth members up to our most seasoned active members.
Greeters/Hospitality Ministry monthly meetings are every 1st Monday at 7:00 PM in the OWBC Sanctuary.
