Mayor Cranley Proclaims Lee Chapel Week
Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley proclaimed September 15-23, 2018 as "Lee Chapel AME Church Week in Cincinnati" to celebrate its 120th Anniversary.

Led by Pastor Kevin Cooper, the Anniversary theme is Remembering our Past and Reveling in Our Future, based on the theme scripture Joshua 4:20-24, and they are inviting the Greater Cincinnati Community to join in the celebration.
Lee Chapel AME Church started out as a cottage prayer service at the home of a gentleman named Green Burrell in 1898. In 1908 Presiding Elder Gee and some members of Brown Chapel and Allen Temple attended the Mission and thereafter urged the Mission to become a church and join the AME Conference. The church has had 26 Pastors, including its current Pastor Rev. Kevin J. Cooper and the previous Pastor Donald E. Newberry, Sr., who led the church to build the current building at 2009 Pogue Avenue, an Annex to the church building and a Senior Citizen Facility.
The Community Events to celebrate its 120th Anniversary and extend its ministry through evangelism and community service included Theater Outings; Fashion Show Extravaganza;
