Friends of Faith

We’re trying something unusual here.

We’re planting a new church — launching a mission — in the sort of urban, inner-ring suburb where mainline congregations have been shrinking and fading away for decades.  And yet, we’re not throwing away the church that began at the corner of Hilliard and Woodward nearly 90 years ago as a mission church, starting out with only a basement, a foundation on which was built a once-thriving congregation.

We’re still blessed with a wonderful building and a small but determined congregation certain that God continues to call them to offer opportunities for people to encounter and grow in their relationship with God, serve their neighbors and care for, encourage and celebrate with each other in community.

The challenges are many.  Here’s three ways you can help:

  • Keep Faith Lakewood in your prayers.
  • Stop in and worship with us (see the calendar on our home page)
  • Attend one of our community events.
  • Consider a financial contribution.  Contributions may directed to Faith Lutheran Church (with “Faith Mission Fund” in the memo line) and mailed to or, better yet, dropped off when you visit us at 16511 Hilliard Road, Lakewood OH 16511.
  •  Follow our efforts through this website or on our Facebook page “Faith Lakewood” or by sending a note to office@faithlakewood.org and asking to be added to the Friends of Faith e-mail list.

Thanks for your interest in the Faith Lakewood mission.
