What’s Going on for Junior High Schoolers?
Junior High Bible Study
Junior High During the School Year
In the fall, winter and spring Trek Junior High School Bible Study meets at the church on Wednesdays at 6:00pm (same time as AWANA). All Junior Highers are welcome, even if you’ve never been a part of AWANA. Start date is in September 6, 2017 at 6:00pm at the church and we continue through May of 2018. Cost is $25 for a tee shirt and Bible Study book. If money is an issue, please contact Nathan Hiner. The Junior High Bible Study follows the AWANA schedule which typically takes the last Wednesday of the month off. We start in the chapel so come at 6:00pm and look for Nathan.
The Trek Director is COBC Intern Luke Thompson

Senior Pastor Brent Whitney Explains His Vision for Our Teens
The pastors have decided to use the resources of the church to promote family worship and spiritual growth within the home by equipping parents to be the “pastors of the home.” Therefore, we do not offer a weekly “youth group” or a place for teens to “hang out” at church. Instead, we encourage teens to socialize and fellowship with all Christians, young and old alike so that they can benefit from the wisdom of more mature believers and grow in humility and gentleness as they minister to the needs of little children. Though we are not against age segregated fellowship, we believe that the church should play a more limited role in providing such opportunities.
