Otter Creek Assembly of God has been ministering to a culturally and age-diverse congregation for more than 23 years. Located in central Little Rock, the church hosts an average of 600 congregants at Sunday services, and also sponsors a mid-week service and a robust children’s ministry.
Following the relocation of its baptistry, which had been in the center front of the church, Pastor Sandra Tracy was looking to add a large screen that could be used to enhance praise and worship services. Since the sanctuary already had large projection screens flanking each side, Pastor Tracy initially considered adding another one in the center.
“We have a Watchfire monument sign in front of our building that we’ve been very happy with, so we decided to do a cost and features comparison between a projection screen and a large, high resolution digital message center,” Pastor Tracy explains.
After weighing the quality and expenses associated with each technology, the church decided to install a large 4mm Watchfire message center. Otter Creek Assembly of God worked with Anderson LED Signs of Jonesboro, Ark. Owner Greg Anderson conducted an onsite demo with a Watchfire sign to demonstrate the resolution, which made the decision easy.
“The images on the new sign are so crisp and clean that it puts the congregants right into the picture,” said Pastor Tracy. “The resolution is as good or better than any movie theater.”
Anderson specified a Watchfire sign because of Watchfire’s proven reliability, and excellent customer support and service. “This was a great decision by Otter Creek because the sign really reflects how modern and cutting edge the church is,” said Anderson.
The new Watchfire sign works seamlessly with the church’s worship software program, ProPresenter 6, so programming hymn lyrics, background images for sermons, and announcement details is easy.
Best of all, the congregation loves the new sign. “The Watchfire sign has added to the quality of our worship services,” said Pastor Tracy. “Not only does the congregation love it, all our pastors do too because it makes their sermons more engaging.”
