Indoor

MCC is an emerging Christian faith community whose mission is “Connecting our downtown community with our life-changing God.” As image-bearers of the Creator, we seek to honor God through celebrating the creative talents of our members, friends, and the community. We embrace and encourage the arts through various community events and activities. Each year for ArtPrize, we conduct a 4-week series of worship services based upon themes generated by some of the art that we host. We typically have an opening reception, an open-mic artist night, and can host special receptions for a small fee. We typically host many K-12 school class trips at our venue. This year we expect to offer several opportunities for hands-on art experiences led by artists and other experts in their fields. We have been involved in ArtPrize every year, and artists often tell us that they feel that they become part of our community, and leave as friends. A $50 venue fee covers promotions and insurance.

Built in 1844, it's one of the oldest houses still standing in the city and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Greek Revival building was built as a home for Abram W. Pike, a local merchant. The home's distinctive white columns, originally of the Ottawa House Hotel, were hauled to the site by oxen at the direction of Pike, after the Ottawa House was abandoned by its developers, who had hoped Port Sheldon would become a thriving seaport. Right next door to the Women's City Club and across the street from the Masonic Temple the Pike House served as the Grand Rapids Art Museum for over 50 years.
