The congregation worshiped at this site for the next 100 years; however, the church could not last forever. In 1976 the building was sold to the Messiah Holiness Church of God in Christ. Tragedy struck this organization in 1997 when a fire broke out inside the church resulting in extensive damages to the building. Since then, the building has remained abandoned, due to the cost of renovating the structure.
In 2015 the abandoned church was sold to the Catholic Diocese of Youngstown; their goal was to remove the church from the land in order to create additional parking. However, they did not want to destroy the building instead, hoping to move the church to a separate location. This led to collaboration with Cityscape, a nonprofit community development organization. In 2015 Cityscape began their efforts to move the Welsh Congregational Church to Wick Park. The project has been delayed pending funding as of 2019; however, Cityscape is still hopeful to move and renovate the historic church.
