Ministries of FELC

  • Monthly Produce Distribution (April – November, Second Tuesday) – A team of volunteers meets to prepare produce supplied by The Greater Cleveland Food Bank. This distribution reaches about 150 families per month.
  • Bare Necessities Room – Our church family donates designated monthly “bare necessity” items that are then given to those in need in our community.
  • Wednesday Noon Lunch –  A free meal is served the first and third Wednesdays of each month to our local community.  A brief devotional and music begins at 12:15, followed by a 12:30 lunch.
  • Communion for our Home Bound Members – A number of communion deacons regularly take communion to our home bound members. Once every month, communion deacons visit local nursing homes and offer communion during a brief worship service.
  • Daily Bread Meals – Meals are provided for those who have just been released from the hospital.
  • Funeral Dinners – Funeral meals are provided for grieving families. Members donate salads, casseroles, and desserts for these meals while the main dish is provided by the Women’s Ministry Group.
  • Prayer Chain – The prayer chain is set in motion when someone requests prayer for themselves or another person.
  • Christmas Candy Packing for Home Bound members – Candies are packaged by our Women’s Ministry group for our home bound members of the church. They are then delivered by our Communion Deacons.
  • In February, the Women’s Bible Study sends out Valentine cards and gifts to our college students and college-age military members.
  • In May, we give each high school graduate a hand-made quilt as well as another nice gift from Women’s Ministry to honor their graduation.
  • During the season of Epiphany, we observe a Thank Offering Sunday, which directs designated donations to a special project determined annually.
  • Stamps Project – Postage stamps are collected, packaged and mailed to New York where they are used to provide occupational therapy to improve the lives of handicapped persons throughout the world.
  • Prayer Shawl Ministry – People who enjoy crocheting and knitting gather regularly to make prayer shawls and fleece blankets for people facing health issues, grief, or celebrating a birth!
  • Luther Fellowship – Our 80 and older members meet on the third Monday of each month in the afternoon for fellowship and a fun activity.
