Where’s the money coming from?

Though MBC has experienced a 75% drop in attendance, the Elders consistently report no drop in financial giving. The numbers just don’t add up! When Lon Solomon retired, MBC was completely debt free, yet in 2020 the Leadership borrowed $1.85M from the Federal government. After the Pandemic, they requested forgiveness of that loan, which was ultimately granted. If MBC was solvent as a church, why did it need money from the Federal government?
