Everyone matters here.

First Christian Church understands that the needs of some individuals are best met in an exceptional setting. That’s why we work hard to create an environment where all people can participate and feel valued.

Special Events


At FCC, we love getting together any chance we get. Several of the events we have each year are designed specifically for people with disabilities.


Respite Night is a twice-a-year event where parents and family members are provided a free night away. Children are buddied up for the evening, enjoy a meal, play games, and participate in all kinds of themed activities.


Night to Shine our annual Jesus Prom sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation. Mark your calendars for February 10, 2017. This is our next scheduled Prom where we will literally roll out the red carpet treatment for adults with disabilities. Stay tuned for more details.


Mission Trips Unique, out of state, opportunities for our friends with disabilities to go on Mission serving God and others.

Community Involvement


We’re here to make a difference in our community. There are several avenues through which we work toward this goal in the disabilities community.


Volunteer Guardianship is a way we partner with Stark County DD and the local courts to extend Jesus’ love to as many people as possible.


Edgewood Field exists for use by children and adults with varying disabilities. It serves as the home field for Canton Challenger Baseball and for Stark Public Special Olympics Softball. Volunteer opportunities are available each spring and summer.

In Luke 14, Jesus invites all the people who wouldn't normally get invited to a party. Shouldn't we extend the same invitation?
