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 bring.

................................Lent
As early as the mid-fourth century, Christians have observed
--> time of preparation
before the Easter celebration.

The Lenten seaon begins on Ash Wednesday
and lasts for 40 days. Sundays are not included in this count.
 
The 40 days of Lent recall the 40 day fast of Jesus in the wilderness after his baptism (Matthew 4:2, Luke 4:1-2) and Moses' 40 day fast on Mount Sinai (Exodus 34:28). |
It is a time of simplicity and preparation.
