Parishioners attending the Jan. 1 Central Christian Church service learned it will break ground this fall on a Queen Creek campus on the southeast corner of Signal Butte and Ocotillo roads.
(Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story said the church property was on the southwest corner. The Independent apologizes for the mistake and any confusion it may have caused.)
The church has owned the 16-acre parcel since March, Pastor Duane Boyett said during a phone interview. The new church will be just under 40,000 square feet in size and will serve CAC’s 600-800 congregants in Queen Creek.
Above, Pastor Boyett holds up a sign announcing the good news during the 9 a.m. church service. Church services are held at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. at CAC’s temporary home at Queen Creek Performing Arts Center, 22149 E. Ocotillo Road.
CAC has served Queen Creek from that site since September 2010, Pastor Boyett said during his interview. It also holds services in Ahwatukee, Gilbert, Glendale and Mesa.
