Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church
“The Light Shines in the Darkness....” (John 1:5)
Messiah is a Christian community of over 1000 people who gather at our church and school in Fairview Park on the western side of Greater Cleveland. Like churches across the country, we’ve responded to this long pandemic by adjusting old habits and learning new ones. Many us are participating mostly online these days. Others are attending in-person again, especially now that vaccines are available. We thank God that they are. We encourage each other to make use of them. We look forward eagerly to the day when the blanket lifts completely and we can see our building filled with people drawn together in the praise and service of God.
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.

COVID infections have been soaring in Cuyahoga County and at an all-time high, twice as many per day as at this time last year. Regard this as an invitation from God to care for each other.
- In keeping with CDC recommendations, we strongly encourage everyone to wear a mask at services. This includes those who are fully vaccinated. Masks will be available in the atrium and narthex if you left yours at home.
- Please observe social distancing guidelines at all services. Greet each other by waving or bowing. No handshakes, please.
- We will not pass collection plates. Continue to look for them in the narthex.
