It seems like there’s a never-ending string of updates when a business moves from one location to another. In this case, Hangtime, the trampoline park, moved from 1206 Highway 5/35 in Benton (next to former Fitness Unlimited). The property has sat dormant for months, but now there is some activity in the building. Yesterday afternoon, I got word that GracePoint Church is in the process of moving in.
“We are extremely excited to have a great location, but even more than that, we are excited to be able to unashamedly speak of a God who can restore hope, joy, and faith to those who are desperate for answers in our world today,” stated Lead Pastor Jason White.
White grew up in Saline County and graduated from Benton High School in 1996. He says the church started meeting inside Benton Event Center in August of 2014 and eventually moved to their own building, but it was a tight fit.
“We have been in a very small storefront next to Dominoes for a few years now, and believe that this new location will provide a great spot for us to continue to grow.”
“We want to show the same unconditional love that we have experienced, no matter the background,” said White. “We are working hard to hold our first service there on April 7th.”
