The Church Street Annex Auditorium is one of our newer buildings that we have acquired. Located on the edge of our campus, The Church Street Annex Auditorium is formerly known as Cleveland’s First Baptist Church. The auditorium (old sanctuary) seats 900 including two side wings and a balcony. Instead of one main center aisle, the auditorium has separated into two aisles centered off of each other. The stage is set with plenty of room for the bridal party, as well as musicians. The entire auditorium is dressed in a rich, deep red color and filled with standard church pews, sure to be a beautiful setting for any wedding.
The Church Street Annex Commons are a part of the old First Baptist Church property and is connected to the Auditorium, which makes it ideal for any wedding reception. Aside from wedding receptions, the Commons are a beautiful setting for any other special event you have in mind. The Commons are an open room located in the lower part of the Church Street Annex. Up to 100 guests can fit comfortably, theatre style, or up to 15 round tables can each seat up to 8 guests. This room is also perfect for a mix and mingle setting with few chairs and a small bar countertop in the corner--perfect for any food or drink set up. This serving area has a small storage room with a sink that is accessible from behind the counter.
The Ocoee Street Annex Community Room is another part of our recently acquired First Baptist Church property. The Community Room seats up to 250 and is directly across the street from the Church Street Annex Auditorium making it ideal for any large reception. The Community Room is a large room with plenty of space for up to 30 tables, and other cake or decoration tables needed. The high ceilings truly open up the room to make any event that much more elegant.
The Lee University Chapel is our University’s newest development. Set on the corner of Ocoee and 11th Street, the chapel is a great welcoming sight onto Lee’s campus. The chapel seats 300 total: one center section of 160, two side wings holding 50 each, and the balcony holds another 40. We do allow weddings or other special family events to take place in the chapel.
