Rivers Crossing Community Church, based in Mason, Ohio, decided to renovate a movie theater to serve as home for its growing congregation.

(CINCINNATI) June 2, 2016— When Rivers Crossing Community Church, based in Mason, Ohio, decided to renovate a movie theater to serve as home for its growing congregation, FASTSIGNS® of Cincinnati, OH - Mason worked with the church from the beginning of construction through the complete build out to help transform the theater into a modern, welcoming environment. 

“Initially, the church was concerned that the space might look like an empty warehouse because they moved from a small building to a giant, oversized move theater,” said Jon Blum, franchisee of FASTSIGNS® of Cincinnati, OH - Mason. “To overcome the challenge, we used large scale designs and incorporated shapes, colors, photographs and dimensional elements throughout the signs and graphics to fit the new space and reflect the church’s vision.”   

Comprehensive visual communications solutions provided by the Mason FASTSIGNS center included a three-sided entrance sign that features changeable messages, exterior billboard graphics, dimensional letters for multiple entrances, a stainless steel dimensional logo, custom wallpaper, regulatory and ADA-compliant signage and wayfinding signage.

FASTSIGNS designed a dimensional timeline that tells the story of the church’s history. This distinctive wall graphic includes the words, ‘greater things are yet to come’ to intentionally allow room for many events to be displayed in the future.

“Our church wants to expand over the next few years, and we needed solutions that will grow with us,” said James Bailey, Creative Director, Rivers Crossing Community Church. “With a large building, you can’t do small signage; it would just get lost. These signs and graphics have been a huge success.” Read the full case study on the movie theater to church makeover.
