CRESTVIEW — Mosaic Church will soon have a much larger home, and that means more opportunities for helping people, head pastor James Ross said.

The church, which meets in a building owned by Central Baptist Church, soon will share facilities with Living Faith Baptist Church and Crestview Korean Church off James Lee Boulevard.

The 9,000-square-foot property currently serves four members, according to Living Faith Pastor Tony Orsa.

Mosaic averages an estimated 200 Sunday visitors, Ross said.

"With the group that Mosaic has, we felt that they could use the resources of the building," Orsa said. "We thought it would be of better service to them."

Facility use was offered at no charge, and Mosaic members performed $75,000 worth of renovations, according to Ross.

To prepare for the first service at their new home June 1, church members are constructing lighting systems and contractors are renovating the inside byreplacing walls, changing flooring and updating the main sanctuary.
