(KMOV.com) -- Some church groups from around St. Louis rallied this weekend in support for a popular downtown homeless shelter.

Dozens carried signs Sunday afternoon as they walked to city hall in support of the New Life Evangelical Center.

The center has come under fire as downtown businesses look to close the shelter citing the rising number of homeless loitering in the city.

The building currently operates under a hotel license, which allows people to stay at the shelter overnight.
