The Church at Liberty Square in Cartersville, Georgia recently upgraded its youth worship room with an impactful display that could be the centerpiece of the churche’s future events, utilizing a Radiance LED VX Series display from Digital Projection.
Building On Strong Foundations Of Faith
When operating during normal service schedules, the church welcomes in around 1,400 guests each week, and it also hosts a multitude of events not only for its own congregation but for other local churches as well. With ministries for men, women, children, and students, along with an impressive praise & worship choir and orchestra, the church is adept at tailoring its outreach and message for the entirety of its parish. To maintain this level of service for their younger members, this meant upgrading and updating the youth worship room.
Youth Minister Kolton Sosebee explains: “We ultimately wanted an exciting atmosphere that the kids could come to – a space to call their own – and something high quality that they could all enjoy. We strive to provide a strong spiritual experience in our services and so we wanted a visual and acoustic experience to match that.” To bring their plans to fruition, the church reached out to the house of worship design specialists at the Lyell Group.
Designing For The Future
What started out as a warehouse space with outdated equipment soon became a place on which the church’s future events and growth of the community depended. Jeff Arnold, CFO and Administrative Pastor at the church, says, “This room was always intended to be a place for the younger members of our congregation, but we also wanted to create an engaging and energetic space that could host special events, dinners, and prayer meetings with state-of-the-art equipment.”
After some initial remodeling and designs of the space, it became clear to the Lyell Group that a larger renovation would bring the church’s hopes into a reality. Jason Lyell, president and CEO of the Lyell Group explains the project: “When we first looked at the space, we saw a lot of potential in this older-looking room, but we knew we had to start from scratch.”
High-Quality Display For A Higher Spiritual Experience
Lyell Group began by adding in decorative sound absorption, wall-mounted loudspeakers, a new audio console, PTZ cameras, and a live streaming system. When it came time to overhaul the video component of the space, Radiance LED VX Series 2.5 mm, measuring 219 inches diagonal, was Lyell’s choice for a central display. “We’re very big into customer service at this company,” says Lyell. “The quality and reliability of Digital Projection’s products that we’ve used in the past has given us – and our customers – a great deal of peace of mind. If I attach my name to it, I’m only going to specify trustworthy brands like DP.”
Flanked by two support monitors, the Radiance LED display allows the youth ministers and church staff to show vivid and captivating content, along with inspirational imagery, song lyrics, and scripture passages. “The whole environment is simply incredible, and the Radiance LED Wall is the showpiece of the room,” states Arnold. “When you first walk in, the wall immediately grabs your attention and drives the atmosphere of the room.”
“The Perfect Backdrop for Any Event”
Sosebee adds, “The kids absolutely love the new environment, and the LED Wall is the pinnacle of it all – the piece that puts it all together. When we have new visitors come in, their first reaction is always, ‘Wow – this is awesome!’”
Working in conjunction with audio quality similar to a recording studio, the Radiance LED Video Wall sets the stage for the church’s weekly live-streamed youth and children’s services, as well as prayer meetings, special event conferences, and promotional videos produced throughout the week. Arnold continues, “The LED Wall is the perfect backdrop for any event we have going on in that space. It’s far more engaging than what we had anticipated. It brings new life into our presentations and worship services.”
