Instruments at BCOC
The congregation and choir at BCOC are accompanied by a 34-rank mechanical action pipe organ built by the Noack Organ Company of Georgetown, Massachusetts. Flamed copper pipes form the façade of the organ with the longest pipe being over 16 feet tall.

A six foot Baldwin grand piano in the sanctuary is used for occasional accompaniment of choirs and soloists. The choir rehearsal room has a Horugel grand piano. Other pianos include two Yahama studio pianos: one in the Bock-Mayse Ministry center and the other in the children's choir rehearsal room, as well as a Yahama upright piano in the fellowship hall. The church has a five-octave set of Schumerich handbells and three-octave set of Malmark handchimes. BCOC also owns a full consort of baroque recorders made by the Artists Ltd, Company.
