We welcome you to our website, where you may find information about opportunities for worship, as well as newsletters, bulletins and sermons. But we, also, envision this as a ministry tool: to provide help in a variety of ways for those in need. Feel free to explore, and let us know if you have any questions!
We are not simply here for our own membership. We believe our congregation is here to reach out, reflecting the boundless love of Christ for our neighbors near and far away. In doing so, we hope to renew lives in the relentless grace of God. Our building has become a community center of sorts, housing different faith expressions, support groups, counseling services, community meals and more. We are part of the Maple Heights community, the greater Cleveland area, not to mention a part of the wider body of Christ for the sake of the world. We are all in this together!
We are proud to be part of the wider ministry of the ELCA, with the motto, "God's Work. Our Hands." The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with about 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
We are, also, a member congregation of the Northeastern Ohio Synod to sustain a vision of unity, reaching across the barriers and share the love of Christ well beyond the walls of our own churches. The NEOS strives to connect members and congregations to tools and resources we can use in our own respective ministries, sustaining communities of faith, and provide support wherever possible. We are in this together, and together we are strong.
