    Living Stones Church in Red Deer, Alberta has a rather unique expansion plan. When funds are available, the church has plans to knock out one of the sanctuary sidewalls in order to build out the room’s mirror image. The result will be a wide, fan-shaped room that effectively doubles seating capacity from 700 to approximately 1,400. In anticipation of that expansion and because problems with the existing sound system had become unbearable, Living Stones Church contracted Merge Systems Inc. of… View this post
