Hutchinson church grows from 120 to 1,300 members

HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) -- A Hutchinson church that has gone from 120 to 1,300 members in the last decade is preparing to move into a new home while celebrating its growth.

Besides the congregation of the CrossPoint Church who attend services in Hutchinson, about a thousand more members watch from nine satellite locations in central and western Kansas.

The church's growth began in 2002, when Senior Pastor Andy Addis arrived. Today CrossPoint has six services at two Hutchinson locations, as well as the nine satellite locations from Ulysses to Concordia.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/12EIfot ) the church is in the midst of renovating a large former bowling alley that is empty to accommodate its growing membership. Construction is expected to be complete by May 2014.
