With power available at the projector and the lamp off (projector off) - hold the input button on and press the power button on and hold for 5 secs. This will reset the lamp timer to zero.
I wish they could have stuck this in the operators manual.

If memory serves me correctly, there is an OSD button on the projector itself. Press that once. You may have turned off the OnScreen Display feature. If that fails to resolve the problem, please let me know and I'll look up your specific model.

Press the MENU button. Use the < > arrows to get to the OPTION menu. Press the ENTER button. Select LAMP RUN TIME. Press and hold the ENTER button for about 3 seconds. The 'lamp time reset' will display. Press OK and press the ENTER button. This will reset the lamp hours as well as turn off the projector.

It sounds like the projection lamp is beginning to show its age. How many hours of use does the unit have on the bulb? The bulb are typically rated for about 800-1600 hours of use before they go bad. The bluish image on the screen image is a typical tell-tale sign that the bulb is going to need replacing.
Most of your better projection units will have an internal time counter of the bulb life from the time the unit is first used or when a bulb is replaced. Check to see if your unit has this feature, if so it will show you on the screen display what is the total number of hours on the bulb and the estimated remaining hours of life.
Be aware that the replacement bulbs are NOT cheap and usually will cost you several hundred dollars, I have seen bulbs for professional projection units used for large convention/presentations have bulbs costing as much as $500.00 USD.
One other last thing to check is to clean the lens of the unit both inside and outside. To clean the inside, you will need to remove the bulb (be sure to wear a rubber glove as the oils from your skin will cause the lamp to blow, (causes a hot spot)). Then using a cleaning wipe, just as one used for cleaning microscopes or glasses, wipe the lenses. The discoloration might also being caused by dirt and oils on the lenses.
I hope this shed some light on your church's projection problem.

Testimonial: "I was hoping that it would not be a bulb issue. I do not know at this point how much age is on the bulbs, but I am going to check tomorrow. "
