CONSTRUCTION OF NEW CROSSPOINT CHURCH BUILDING BEGINS IN FISHERS
By Cameron Schuh
FISHERS, IND.—As the sight of new businesses and housing developments have become the norm along Olio Road, another construction has begun that hopes to provide something a little different for the community.
Crosspoint Church, founded in March 2007, has broken ground on its new building at the corner of Olio and Silverstone Drive, across the street from Hamilton Southeastern High School. The goal of the new home is to be more than just a building for church services.
“The Crosspoint Launch Pad is, at its core, a community gathering place,” said Curt Walters, lead pastor of Crosspoint. “Church isn’t about 75 minutes in an auditorium. It’s about starting a conversation that helps explore new pathways to God that begins to impact all aspects of our lives.”
The 16,000 square foot facility being built on roughly 4.5 acres will be used for weekend services, but will also provide a “third space” environment, for use by the community throughout the week. It will feature an open lobby concept, complete with comfortable chairs, free Wi-Fi, an indoor playground for kids to use and a coffee bar for the parents to enjoy while they oversee their children. The building is expected to be completed by summer of 2014.
Crosspoint has spent the past six years renting space in the auditorium and select classrooms of Fall Creek Intermediate, also located on Olio Road. Through the years, what began as a handful of attendees, has now turned into hundreds of people exploring God, seeking truth and authentic community at Crosspoint.
“We were outgrowing the space at Fall Creek Intermediate School,” said Walters. “We are beginning to hit the maximum capacity in the auditorium and children’s environments, where guests don’t feel like there is room for them.”
This growth has resulted in Crosspoint adding a second service and expanding its children’s environments, as well as helping start another church campus in the Pendleton community.
“With this growth and the desire for Crosspoint to be a hub for connection in the community, we knew the time was now to make the move into a more permanent facility that will in essence, be a Launchpad for the ministries of Crosspoint in our community.”
