I agree with what others are saying. Sometimes it's better to take a step back and look at what you have already in place to work with before you dive right into spending a whole lot of money. I have worked with churches in the past that all that was needed was some simple training and a few tweaks to the processing. But since you're talking about replacing the system I would really suggest consulting a professional before just buying something because it sounded good at a DJ party. A pro could Point you in the right direction after reviewing your style of worship and the actual venue itself. When I do church installs I always sit down with the worship leaders and tec directors to find out the needs from both groups. I also understand you have came here for advice on some types of gear... Most smaller churches that I have done installs in satisfy with a flown cluster of community speakers (Size and model depending on the style of worship an size of the room), a community subwoofer, QSC amplification, and a StudioLive. I do not suggest you try to fly any kind of speakers however without a pro! This could be very dangerous and a huge liability! But again I will say, just don't buy something because it's cheap and it puts out sound. This always comes to mind when having a discussion such as this
"Even in the case of lifeless things that make sounds, such as the pipe or harp, how will anyone know what tune is being played unless there is a distinction in the notes? Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle? So it is with you. Unless you speak intelligible words with your tongue, how will anyone know what you are saying? You will just be speaking into the air. Undoubtedly there are all sorts of languages in the world, yet none of them is without meaning. If then I do not grasp the meaning of what someone is saying, I am a foreigner to the speaker, and the speaker is a foreigner to me. So it is with you. Since you are eager for gifts of the Spirit, try to excel in those that build up the church. (1 Corinthians 14:7-12 NIV)"
