Souper Bowl of Caring is back at Messiah.

The Social Ministry Committee is collecting all kinds of soup, canned or boxed, for the Heights Emergency Food Center in Cleveland Heights. From Jan 7–Feb 4, we will be joining organizations across the country to collect soup for those in need. Please support Messiah’s effort to “love our neighbors” by donating soup. One hundred percent of all donations go directly to the Heights Emergency Food Center which serves the cities of Lyndhurst, Cleveland Heights, University Heights and South Euclid.

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.
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.

If you would like to volunteer please come, all are welcome.
Any questions contact Sandy Tsvedos at

Faithful Friends has resumed! Please join us!

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.
