About Christ Deaf Lutheran Church

The Christ Deaf Lutheran Church is located in Cleveland, OH and is part of the Lutheran Church of Missouri Synod denomination of churches. If you are a member of the Christ Deaf Lutheran church we encourage you to write a review and post upcoming church events. Beginning in the early 1900's the Lord brought the message of His love to the deaf in Cleveland through His servant, Reverend Arthur Bell. In the 1940's it was clear that the deaf needed their own church "home". Under the capable leadership of Reverend Theodore Frederking, a new chapel was finished and dedicated to the Lord on June 26th, 1949 at East 25th Street, Cleveland, Ohio. The church moved to a larger building at 2203 Superior Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio which was dedicated to the Lord on October 15, 2000.

A deaf community drafted the basic requirements for the church, which were passed on to the architect. the interior demolition began early in 2000. Teams of deaf men and women removed tons of debris from this site. Later, a general contractor finished the work. The church members painted, varnished, purchased chairs, bought coffee area equipment, moved the furnishings from the old church and took care of hundreds of other details. The distance from the altar to the last row is about the maximum one can read the signs. The pale blue altar background give the best contrast to a person's hands. Strong overhead lights also help with hand illumination. The stained glass window to the right of the altar was removed from the old church and mounted in the oak frame. The corner stone from the old church from the old church rests near the front door entrance.

Isaiah 54:2-3 - Enlarge the place of your tent and let them stretch out the curtain of your dwellings; do not spare; lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes. For you shall expand to the right and to the left, and your descendants will inherit the nations and make the desolate cities inhabited.
1 Corinthians 1:18 The teaching about the cross seems foolish to those people that are lost. But to us who are saved it is the power of God. ERV
