NASHVILLE, Tenn. - One of Nashville's largest and fastest growing churches is moving to a new location. Cross Point Church will soon leave West Nashville to be closer to Downtown, but it plans to leave a gift behind to their longtime community.
Take a close look beyond this construction site, you'll see a vision Cross Point Church is turning into a reality.
"We're standing inside of the auditorium but just over this wall you will find a window that shows the Nashville skyline, and it's just a reminder to us as a church that we want to serve the city of Nashville," said Cross Point Church Executive Director Jenni Catron.
Taking its location from Charlotte Pike in West Nashville, the church will soon open its doors to the heart of Downtown.
Those in the West Nashville community will tell you, their hearts will feel the loss.
"We all need help and we thank them for being helpful and helping us with it and we thank them so much," said West Nashville resident Linda Newsom.
However, Cross Point has a plan, and it's called the Dream Center.
Located just blocks from the church's current location, it might take some imagination to see what it will look like but not to understand the vision.
"We've seen where people have been impacted, and so it just makes sense because even if our Nashville campus is moving closer to downtown that we care about this community and we want to be a part of it," said Cross Point Church Missions Pastor Ryan Bult. "We don't just want to leave them when they mean so much to us and us to them."
Demolition on the Dream Center's site on Delaware Avenue is expected to happen this week, possibly ready to open mid-March.
