Cedar Creek Church expanding to Findlay

Posted: Updated:
FINDLAY, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Cedar Creek Church will soon have a campus in the city of Findlay.

The church already has four Toledo area locations, in west Toledo, south Toledo, Perrysburg and Whitehosue. The fifth church will be inside the former movie theatre at the Findlay mall.

The largest service at the new facility will be able to accommodate 1,500 people, in addition to a 500 seat auditorium. Church leaders say the number of people commuting to the Toledo area from Findlay drove them to explore opening a church in the flag city.

"We're really excited. We've know about two to four hundred families who come up from Findlay to our Perrysburg location. This will be the furthest away we've ever put a cedar creek campus but we're excited to be in the city of Findlay," said Regional Campus Director Ben Snyder.

Community members are happy to see another church opening its doors.

"I think it's great it's a lot better than an empty building there that's for sure. The mall needs something because a lot of the stores have left," said

Church leaders say the Findlay location should be up and running by this time next year.
