CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - The pastor of a Chattanooga church that was evicted from its downtown location after a shooting that injured nine people has settled into a new home.
Mosaic Church pastor Tim Reid told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that the church's location may have changed -- it's now on the city's north side -- but its mission has not. He said the church continues to host events at nightclubs in an effort to reach out to urban youth and gang members.
Mosaic was ordered to vacate its downtown building after a shooting early Christmas morning as people left a controversial church-sponsored nightclub called Club Fathom.
Reid said Mosaic doesn't hold Club Fathom at its new location, but it still rents downtown clubs, hires performers and invites teens to the shows.
