In an effort to make its services more engaging and relevant to an ever-expanding and diversified congregation, Haw River Christian Church, doing business as The Lamb’s Chapel in Haw River, NC, recently completed its new, two-story, 31,889 square foot worship center that’s headline by a new sound reinforcement system, as well as a dynamic video system.
With the sanctuary providing a seating capacity ranging from 2,500-3,000 (depending upon the arrangement of the movable seating), the new complex takes advantage of the latest advances in building construction.
The Lamb’s Chapel employs a structural steel skin – thereby dramatically reducing the time required to erect the facility – with a stone, stucco, and glass veneer. Like the building itself, The Lamb’s Chapel employs state-of-the-art AV technology to help its pastoral staff convey God’s word.
Burlington NC-based Boone Audio Incorporated, a design/build firm specializing in audio and video installations for the church, corporate, and education markets, was contracted to provide the audio-visual system for the new worship center.
According to Paul Boone, President and CEO of Boone Audio, Inc., “The Lamb’s Chapel is a non-denominational church that offers a unique blend of traditional and contemporary worship styles, with music assuming a vital role in their services. In addition to a full choir, there is also a five-piece praise band plus a praise team consisting of five vocalists and a worship leader.
“In order to gain a thorough understanding of the church’s requirements for the new facility, we attended services and met extensively with church management during the planning stages.”
“It became quite clear that management sought a concert level sound system with an equally compelling visual presence to help reinforce the message,” Boone stated. “With that in mind, we proceeded to design a sound system that included left-center-right line array clusters consisting of loudspeakers from the WorxAudio Technologies TrueLine catalog with five strategically placed Da-Lite Da-Snap projection screens.”
