Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church
“The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” (John 1:5)
Messiah is a Christian community of over 1000 people who gather when we can at our church in Fairview Park on the western side of Greater Cleveland. Our habits have changed during the pandemic. Most of us are participating online this winter. We look forward eagerly to the day when the blanket lifts and we can fill our building again.
For now we hold one service on Sunday mornings, at 8:30. It is livestreamed and available for viewing throughout the week. You can reach it through our website.
Our Sunday services are also open for in-person attendance, though with strict protocols in place.
- No more than 50 attending (in a sanctuary that seats 350).
- Masks are required.
- We insist on social distancing.
- We are not singing together.
- We restrict building access to our main doors.
- We ask all in-person worshipers to register in advance. See below for details.
Messiah remains active in many other ways. To explore this, we invite you to sign up for our weekly emails. Our key ministry is Messiah Lutheran School, offering a superb Christ-centered education for children from Preschool through Grade 8. To learn more, visit the school website
