Volunteer at Messiah Lutheran Church

In our church offices, at our mission projects, or through special outreach projects, volunteers from our congregation and our community play a significant role in bringing God's Word to life. For more information about volunteering opportunities, please explore the opportunities below and contact our church office if you'd like to get involved or have a new idea. Thanks for your interest and support!

Laundry Love 

On the last Thursday of each month, Messiah Lutheran Church hosts "Laundry Love" at Leo's Laundromat, 20210 Lorain Road in Fairview Park, from 6-8 pm. Laundry Love has expanded to a second location at The Wash House and Café, 15149 Lorain Ave in Cleveland, from 11am-1pm on the second Saturday of each month.

Our mission is to assist people with a simple need; clean clothes. Others who have participated in this program have discovered that Laundry Love is about much more than the clothes. It's about being a listening ear, praying whenever the opportunity or need is there, and letting our friends and neighbors know that we love them. We want to do what Jesus would do in the community. Our prayer is that we're giving hope--by donating something practical, basic and dignifying. Simply by alleviating the financial burden of washing and drying clothes, families can spend their money on food, medicine, utilities and other necessities.
Volunteers and financial sponsors are needed to help make this new outreach ministry a success. For more information, contact Laundry Love team leader Janice Snyder at [email protected].
