Our Denomination

Our Congregation is a part of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).  This denomination has its roots in the Stone Campbell movement started in the 1830's.


The Disciples are very active in missions and have a strong focus on reconciliation. Our church provides generous support to the denominational Week of Compassion each year.  See Week of Compassion - Home for more information.

The Disciples own Camp Christian located near Magnetic Springs, 14 miles from Delaware, Ohio. Here they offer local activities, camps, conferences, and retreats. Youth retreats and conventions are held throughout the state and at Hiram College and in Bethany College in West Virginia, which are both Disciples colleges.

We participate in the Christian Church in Ohio Disciples of Christ.


First Christian Church

Our church started in 1843. We are the fourth oldest congregation in Massillon. 
In 2001, we added a two-floor addition to our original 1958 building.  The top floor is a fellowship hall/half court gym with high ceilings for volleyball and basketball.  Just off of the hall is a very nice kitchen which is great for dinners, and other community events. 


The hall and kitchen facilities are available for rental as well.


Our Pastor

Greetings from FCC Massillon!

On January 16, 2022, I joined our community as the settled pastor. It is my joy to join the ministry of FCC.

This church knows well what it means to be a family, sharing life and encouragement with one another. You are welcome to join us each Sunday, in-person or on-line.


May the Lord Bless you and keep you,

Pastor Sara
