From Jan 6 – Feb 3, we joined churches across the country in the
Souper Bowl of Caring. Thank you for your donations!!

The Souper Bowl of Caring is a national movement working together around the time of the Super Bowl football game to fight hunger and poverty in local communities.

Our goal is to collect soup for those who are hungry and hurting. Please donate all kinds of soup – canned or boxed.

The Social Ministry Committee will give our soup donations to The Heights Emergency Food Center (HEFC). The HEFC provides food for people in emergency situations. It serves the residents of Lyndhurst, South Euclid, Cleveland Heights and University Heights.

The Social Ministry committee will be hosting a soup coffee hour to highlight our soup drive, following both services on Sunday, January 20. Please join us for a variety of delicious soups and conversation.

Faithful Friends is a ministry to developmentally and/or intellectually disabled adults from all over Northeast Ohio. Meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month from 7:00pm - 8:30pm.

A typical evening includes hymn singing, bible study, crafts, entertainment, and a snack. Hymn singing starts out the evening with everyone sitting in a giant circle, singing hymns, and cheering on members as they sing out to the group. Some of the hymns include Kumbaya, Jesus Loves Me, and This Little Light of Mine. Volunteers help organize the activities and set up the games. They also offer to each friend the gift of social interaction.

If you would like to volunteer please come, all are welcome.

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.
