Server Replacement

At the church I work for we are trying to plan long term for IT expenses.  We replaced our network server in Sept. 2012 with a Dell PowerEdge T410 running MS SBS 2011.  What we are now trying to consider is what the time frame we will need to be looking at that we will have to replace the server again.  We use the server for file storage, we have several programs on the file server that use it for database storage, we run MS Exchange from the server, and we also run SharePoint Foundation from the server.  We have over 60 computers that connect to the network, but only half of those are office computer that use it a large amount of time.  Any information you can give me so we can plan for future replacement of the server would be greatly appreciated.

If everything just works beautifully, what's the point for your church to upgrade the server?

If not, what are the current issues in term of applicaiton support, stoage, performance, security and user experience?

Any upgrade or replacement should be for addressing the current issues not just for keeping up to date or spending money.

We do have virtual servers on the physical server.  Thanks for all the information it is a great help in our planning.  I have been pushing for us to go to volume licenses since I started here, I think I am starting to make them see the logic in it.
