Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church

The Weeks after Pentecost, 2021


“Come, Holy Spirit!”


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. Our habits changed during the pandemic. They are changing again as the threat starts to recede in our area. Many of us are still participating mostly online.  Others are returning to church, especially as vaccines become more and more available. We look forward eagerly to the day when the blanket lifts completely and we can fill our building again.


We continue through the summer to offer two services on Sunday mornings, at 8:30 and 11 a.m. The 8:30 service is livestreamed and available for viewing throughout the week. You can reach it through our website. 


Sunday services are open for in-person attendance, though with certain protocols in place. 

  • Seating is permitted in pews marked with green bows, with a respectful distance between individuals and/or family groups

  • Some of us are vaccinated. As of July 25 we invite them to choose whether to wear a mask or not.

  • Others of us are not vaccinated. We ask them to continue wearing masks for their own safety, though especially for the safety of others in the room, younger children in particular, who have also not been vaccinated. 

  • We ask everyone to continue observing social distancing rules.

  • Quiet singing is permitted at all services. 

  • We continue to restrict building access to our main doors. 

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.
