Church Renovation Task Completed
Meeting the challenge of a two-year plan to renovate their church building, the Redmond (Oregon) Church successfully completed the task in July 2005.
Begun under the leadership of Del Greibel, Redmond's former pastor, and finished under Phil Vasseur, the current pastor, the renovation included re-carpeting the entire church, painting the interior and exterior, complete removal of the interior east wall of the sanctuary, creating seating space for 40 more people, replacing the sound system and constructing a sound booth.
The final portion of the project was reupholstering all the pews. Melody Hale, an experienced upholsterer, directed the project with volunteer assistance from many church members, volunteering close to 100 hours.
