Beyond The Building FAQs
Q: Has the church building been sold?
A: Yes, we sold our facilities and closed on March 19, 2021
Q: Will we be relocating to another location?
A: Yes, our temporary facility is located at 7941 W. 47th Street McCook, IL (near LaGrange, IL, Riverside, IL area)
Q: Parking for the new location under consideration was not clear. Is there room to increase parking from the current 18 spaces?
A: The potential location has 18 parking spaces. We see this facility housing our offices, in-house production studio, and a space where our community groups can meet. We will worship at the McCook location (over 200 parking spaces) until we find a suitable location.
Q: If parking can be increased at some future date, what do we do about parking for the interim period?
A: PLEASE SEE THE ABOVE ANSWER.
Q: Does the location being considered have room for growth as the membership increases?
A: Yes, the potential location will be available 7-days a week for community group gatherings, filming and production.
Q: Since we are presenting to the Village as a for-profit Performing Arts Center, is it owned by the nonprofit MH Church / MH Anywhere? Will MH use the space for worship service?
A: The space will be owned and operated by Mars Hill Baptist Church and made available for community gatherings, rented to organizations, and house all of our in-house production. It will be a joint venture: profit and not-for-profit.
Q: Since this would be a profit vs. nonprofit scenario, what is the impact of taxes and insurance?
A: A portion of the space will be taxable. We will consult with our attorneys, accountant to secure the best deal.
Q: After the August 1st onsite service, how often will we have an onsite service while awaiting access to the new location?
A: We secured a deal with our preferred partner that will allow us to worship twice a month. Once we assess our current membership, we will be able to move forward with worshipping every week.
Q: Will we continue to have periodic online service when we are back in a physical space?
A: YES! We will continue online worship since it’s a VITAL part of our ministry going forward. We will continue being a hybrid church. One that worships in person and online. Online is the future and we would be remiss in our duties to discontinue or diminish it.
