Brooklyn church holds last service at local school

A Sunset Park church is holding its final Sunday service in a local high school because of a law being enforced by the city that bans after-hours worship in public spaces.

The Cross Roads Christian Church has used The High School of Telecommunication Arts and Technology to hold services for the past four years. Church-goers say they don't see how renting out an unused space on Sundays blurs the separation of church and state.

The church's pastor says they'll soon start holding services at a nearby catering hall.
