Wedding Chapel, Event Venue, and Reception Hall Rental - The Somer Stone

Built in 1924, The Somer Stone Wedding Chapel and Event Center was previously known as The First Baptist Church of Odessa. It was purchased and renovated by the Heart of God Fellowship. It is located in the heart of downtown Odessa, and just 35 minutes from Kansas City and 45 minutes from the airport. It is a unique venue for weddings, parties, celebration of life ceremonies, conferences, and meetings. The Chapel has beautiful stained glass windows, antique tin tiled ceilings and oak hardwood flooring, oak pews with red velvet cushions, upper and lower level seating, and gives you a sense of its 1924 history and elegance. There is a ramp into the chapel for handicap access.
