Welcome to Messiah Lutheran Church
messiah_with_crossWe are located in Point Place, part of Toledo, Ohio. We have a long history as a fishing community. Our community members work hard to fulfill the needs of their families

As Jesus told Peter and
his brother, tending their fishing trade along the shores of the Sea of Galilee, to "Come, follow me, and I will make you fishers of men ", (Matthew 4:18-20), we here at Messiah Lutheran Church are also the Lord's "fishers".
We open our arms and hearts to all who want to learn and be part of those who live in the "light" of God's love, forgiveness and promise of eternal life.

As a fisherman, fishing to feed himself and his family, also find peace and the wonders of God's day and creations, we, and you, will find peace walking inGod's light and bringing that light to others. Come and be a fisher for God along with us at Messiah. Feed yourself and help us feed the hungry sitting along the shore needing to be fed; needing to be "nourished" with the food of life and needing to find the peace that only God's food and promise of forgiveness and everlasting life can give.
