OBPC Organ 1Sanctuary Organ In the fall of 2007, our church began    investigating the purchase of a new organ for our sanctuary due to mechanical failures of the previous organ.  Through the extreme generosity of our congregants, we were able to quickly raise the money to purchase a new organ and a contract was signed in the Spring of 2008 with   the Rodgers Organ Company.  The new organ is a Rodgers Trillium Masterpiece 928.  The organ console consists of 3-manuals, drawknobs and pedals with Rosewood Sharps and Ivora Naturals and a 2-tone wood console.  The dedicatory recital was held on Sunday Morning, July 27, 2008 and was lead by our church's organist, Jason Evans.  Two other organ concerts were held in our dedicatory series.  The first was on August 10, 2008 by Mr. Monty Bennett and the second was on September 21, 2008 by Mr. Corey Powell.  Other concerts have been held in piano/organ duet form by Ken Clifton and Jason Evans, by Steve Blackstock and Jason Evans and most recently by Timothy Price and Jason Evans.  In the fall of 2013 a concert was held by Dan Miller and in 2016 a concert was given by Jesse Ratcliffe. Please click here for a list of the organ specifications!

 

Sanctuary Piano


In the spring of 2009, we were blessed by the generosity of our congregants, once again, and were able to purchase a new grand piano for our sanctuary.  The piano is a Yamaha C3 (6'1) grand piano.  It arrived just a few days before our Easter  Musical in April of 2009.  The piano was a used grand purchased in Raleigh, NC from Hopper Piano Company.  We had the action rebuilt, and replaced the hammers in 2010.

 

 

 

Handbells

The Jubilate Ringers are proud of their 3-Octave Whitechapel English Handbells.  The Whitechapel Handbells are made in London by the company know as "the world's most famous bell foundry."

Since acquiring the handbells some years ago, we have also had the opportunity to purchase 3-octaves of handchimes which were dedicated in honor of Mrs. Nonie Booth.
