|New Mt. Hermon M. B. Church, 1975
Before there were any church buildings in Chicago, small groups met in private homes and vacant spaces, and some new congregations have continued to begin in this way. Some groups have rented or borrowed space from an established church. Many congregations of small means have adapted spaces built for other purposes, such as vacant storefronts.
