Chattanooga and Mosaic Church came to an agreement this morning that a temporary restraining order would be in effect for at least 15 days.
CIrcuit Court Judge Jeff Hollingsworth ordered that Mosaic Church, along with River City Church, would only be able to hold church services on the property at 412 Market St.
Tim Reid, Mosaic’s pastor, said he still plans to hold his weekend events at another church location, which he would not name.
The city sought an injunction this week to stop those events from happening, citing a pattern of assaults and gang activity related to the Mosaic-sponsored events.
On Christmas Eve nine people were shot outside the venue.
