Adding speakers is very often the WORSE thing you can do-due to the fact that they are interfering with each other.

I would highly consider a SINGLE wide coverage loudspeaker above the pulpit.  MUCH better than 2 of any loudspeaker.

You will have less interference and great localization.

Ok, how about a recommended speaker for this 30 x 40 room? At the back of the room is overflow area (doubles as fellowship hall) and this area has regular 8' high ceiling with small speakers throughout hooked into the sound system. So mostly what we need is a single wide coverage speaker. Recommendations?

More details are needed.  We know the size of the room-but what is the size/shape of the stage in the room-how far are the people from the stage-what is the seating layout etc.

A single speaker in the middle may (or may not) be enough-it depends on the actual coverage needed.

A simple hand drawing with some dimensions would help greatly.

It may be that you need some side speakers to cover the seats down front on the left and right-we have no idea-since we don't know the actual layout.

What sort of budget is there to work with

It doesn't matter how well a particular speaker might work if it is not in the budget

Budget for speakers hasn't really been discussed, but I think there would be money for a decent speaker there if we determined that the two we have couldn't really do the job. (say, up to $500?) We are inclined to try hanging the 2 we have already. What do you see as the negatives to doing that? (btw, we are also now looking at installing an acoustic tile flat ceiling in the room as a way of trying to minimize echo and reflected sound...)

If that is all the budget there is-and based on the layout/size of the room-I would hang 1 each of your current speakers in the middle each of the seating sections and be done with it.

Do NOT hang a 3rd speaker in the middle-it will do more damage than good.

Provided that the speakers in question are rated flyable...

A recent thought was to instead add a number of smaller flush-mount speakers in the ceiling (like we have in the fellowship hall) Any thoughts about that idea?

With a $500 budget- you would have to find some really cheap speakers and assume the labor would be free.

You just really don't have much money to work with.
