Come join your Messiah family in the age-old festival day known as "Shrove Tuesday." The word "shrove" comes from "shrive" which means "to absolve" as Christians seek absolution from sin during Lent, which begins on March 1 (Ash Wednesday). Our Faithful Friends are also invited to celebrate with us, so we will need lots of volunteers to help flip pancakes! Monetary donations will be accepted to offset the cost of the event. See sign-up sheet in the narthex.

Faithful friends is our ministry to developmentally and/or intellectually disabled adults from all over Northeast Ohio.
We meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 7:00pm - 8:30pm. However, 6/13 is our Luau Party and it starts at 6pm. Please bring a side dish to share!
A typical evening includes hymn singing, bible study, crafts and entertainment, and a snack. We welcome all people into our community and would love to have you join us.
Please contact us for more information on this vital ministry.

Messiah Helps Those in Need

Messiah actively collects food items for the hunger center at New Covenant Lutheran Church in East Cleveland. We have several food drives throughout the year.


Clothing is collected year round for the men's shelter at 2100 Lakeside.


We also give to Lutheran Disaster Response when an emergency arises anywhere in the country. We have collected coats for victims of Hurricane Sandy, as well as personal hygiene kits for the people of Haiti.

Fair Trade

Throughout the year we offer opportunities to purchase "Fair Trade" items. These products are grown and produced in such a way that farmers and workers receive fair compensation and good working conditions. 



Messiah's Day of Caring 


Messiah's newest opportunity to serve our community, neighbors and beyond comes in the form of our Day of Caring. . This past Janurary served dinner at the Men's Homeless Shelter and played bingo with the residents of Kindred the Greens. In February, we collected a Jar of Hearts. Our bulletin board was covered with random acts of kindness on hearts. The coming year will bring way for even more opportunities to serve others.
