 Panel the stage walls up to about 80 percent
   here is the plans for the panels   http://ethanwiner.com/BTPlans.gif
the multiband is the one youll get the most difference from overall
every panel is like creating an open window and defeating the reflections down to about 250hz

aim the monitors at the musicians as direct as possible
and amps toward musicians as well control the stage volume

its not going to be a cure all but you will be impressed by the difference

Sounds like you don't need any electronic drums since only the snare drum and cymbals were mentioned as part of the overall problem.  Is there something on the snare to cut down ring? If not, consider using a dampening ring or Moongel.  A more cost-effective alternative to Moongel can be found in dollar stores.  Look for those gel-like décor items that stick to windows.  Cut to size to get desired result.

As previously mentioned, thinner (good quality) cymbals are better in a lively space such as your church than thick ones as they take less force to speak.  Yes, the Sabian HHX series are thinner and may work for you.  Other contenders: Zildjian K Custom, Zildjian A Custom, and Paiste 602.  These are not cheap new.  With little effort and some patience, peruse your local classifieds for used ones, especially old Zildjian A (Avedis) from the 70s and older.
