Sound Room Solitary Confinement

May 28, 2012   //   by Pastor Tony Zibolski   //   Announcements & General News  //  1 Comment

I found this picture of George in the old sound room. Three words describe the room….tight , isolated, outdated. I still cannot believe the change.

George, You have been set free!


Projection System Construction Updates

May 23, 2012   //   by Joshua March   //   Announcements & General News, Worship  //  2 Comments

Looking for coverage of Rosedale’s Projection System demolition and construction? You’ve come to the right place!

Check this spot for video and pictures of the whole process, giving you all the great views but with none of the dust or need to wear safety goggles!

Week of June 18

We are up and operational! You won’t want to miss Sunday Morning Worship on July 1 when we use it for first time in a service! What a great time to invite a friend!

Day 9-10

Getting really close here! Projector is up and the screen is controllable! Just the computer, the rear-of-house LCD, and a few small things and we’re ready to go! We’re hopeful to be able to bring the system online for testing next week!

Check out the Day 9-10 video tour!

Day 8

The screen is up and the carpet is in! Projector coming on Tuesday!

Day 6-7

Painting is finished and the new desk has been wired for electricity. The screeen is coming soon!

Day 5

Electrical work is done so we can plug things in again! Painting has begun, and general clean-up has taken place. Want a look?

Aw, you don’t think I was going to spoil it for you, was I? No, you’ll have to see on Sunday for yourself!

Day 4

What a day! Not only was the drywall completed, but the plastic dust covers came down, and the remaining studs and supports were removed! And best of all– the new desk is in! And rewiring has begun!

You should have seen the view–well you will on Sunday, but, oh, to be there in person! Couldn’t be there? No problem–just check the video and pictures below!

Check out the Day 4 video tour (and, yes, the cookie-muncher knew we were filming)!

Day 3

The first coat of drywall is back up and some more of the supports are down. Aaaaand… The new desk is here!

The good news? It looks amazing! Twelve incredible feet of “Is this thing really ours? It looks so good!” The bad news? The drywall isn’t done, so it’s sitting in the foyer instead of the Sanctuary! Here’s hoping that it finds its way to its new home tomorrow–but you’ll have to check back to see for yourself!”

Day 2

The LAM beam has been installed and some of the studs are down. Rumor is they had 8 people here today working to make this happen! Check back tomorrow for even more updates!

Check out the Day 2 video tour!

Day 1

The drywall has been removed and we’re down to bare studs. Even after just one day of (de)construction, the Sanctuary feels so open! We’ll keep bringing you the latest!

Rosedale’s Projection System — Coming Sooner Than You Think!

May 4, 2012   //   by Joshua March   //   Announcements & General News, Worship  //  No Comments

Two weeks.

Two weeks?

Two weeks!

Yes! We’re delighted to announce that major construction for our Video Projection System is due to begin the week of May 21! Construction should be completed by the end of the work week. In the time leading up to the 20th, the screen, projectors, and cabling will be installed; but this will have minimal impact on service activities at Rosedale.

We hope you share in our excitement on this project and understand that we want to do a kick-off with as many people present! As such, we’ll be officially ‘launching’ the system on Sunday, July 1. You won’t want to miss it!

So, if you have any love for the current ‘sound room’, I suggest you give it a great big hug some time between now and when you leave service on the 20th–because its days are literally numbered (12 as of this writing, not that I’m counting).

Stay focused on the Lord and excited for what He’s doing at Rosedale!

Full Speed Ahead!

Apr 3, 2012   //   by Joshua March   //   Announcements & General News, Worship  //  No Comments

Rosedale’s Projection System (and related remodel) is on the way!

We’ve just signed the paperwork yesterday and the equipment is being ordered. We expect to see the actual installation start in just 5-6 weeks. The installation might be so fast that it’s completely done between Sundays–so what a change we’ll all be in for when we come in on that first Sunday after it being completed!

We’re all very much looking forward to just how the Lord will use this project to minister to both us and our community. If you’re interested in supporting the project financially, remember that you can mark your donation as “projection” or “multimedia’ and include it in your Sunday morning offering.

And if you’re interested in supporting the new system with your time and energy, please consider becoming part of the new Worship Media Ministry!

Stay excited–and in prayer–for Rosedale as we move forward!
