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. *STARTING BACK SEPT. 11th.*

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.

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 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.

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.
