MASON, Ohio - Crossroads Church will soon have a more commuter friendly facility for the faithful who live in Cincinnati's northern suburbs.
Hundreds of church members and Mason city officials will break ground on the new Crossroads Mason location. The event will run from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The church has been using Mason Middle School for services since 2008.
Church leaders said the new church will be at the site of an old warehouse on Reading Road near Western Row Road.
Crossroad's main campus is in Oakley and another branch is in Florence, Ky.
Church officials said the idea for a Mason branch was started when a group of church members from Mason and West Chester decided they wanted to invite friends to services but didn't want to ask people to drive 30 minutes each way to get there.
The church said about 1,200 people currently attend services in Mason each weekend. That figure is expected to rise to 2,500 once construction is complete.
