WELCOME

Can we start by saying that we can't wait to meet you? Whether you have never stepped foot in a church before or you are looking for a new church home, we have a place just for you. Here at Fairfield, we are all about family. We are all about worship. And most importantly, we are all about Jesus. 



Our mission is simple: Know Christ. Change Lives. 



To us, that means being a multi-generational church. It means stepping out and serving in our community. It means having engaging worship, relevant messages, and a place to make you feel at home. It means having stellar kids ministry programs to connect your kids to Jesus. It means having classes and places of community for all age groups. It means families coming together and loving Jesus together. It means YOU, wherever you are, and whatever you are going through. We are a church made up of those who believe that God has called us so that people everywhere would know Jesus, grow in Him, and go into the world sharing His love. If you are new to Fairfield or thinking about attending FCC for the first time, we are happy to welcome you! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. We are here to help! 


WHO WE ARE

We are located at 1965 North Columbus Street in Lancaster, Ohio. Since 1969, God has done some amazing things through the life of our church. The church has not only grown in number and ministry, but has also supported missions around the world. We have hosted many concerts and community events and have served the community in a number of outreaches. We sponsor Fairfield Christian Academy, a Christian school that ministers to preschool through high school students from many area churches in the Central Ohio area. We invite you to join us in our journey. We meet every Sunday morning at 9:00 am and 10:30 am.


WHEN YOU ARRIVE

You will be welcomed by one of our friendly greeters. They are always ready to assist you and are excited about the opportunity to help make your time with us comfortable and easy. If you have children and wish to have them participate in our excellent children’s ministry, please let a greeter know and they will direct you to our KidsQuest registration desk. We offer a lovely nursery staffed with warm, friendly volunteers as well as classes for toddlers through 6th grade. Teens have a worship experience designed just for them in 'The Underground' at 9:00 am - ask for directions at Guest Services in the main foyer. You may also choose to enjoy a cup of coffee from our Connections Café before or after service times. Our Ushers will help direct you to the Worship Center for the main service. As you make your way into one of the services, there will be opportunities for worship and a practical message from God’s Word. Services last about 1 hour and 15 minutes. You are invited to bring your Bible as we explore the truths of God’s Word and its relevance to our lives.


WHAT TO EXPECT

Dress however you feel comfortable! You'll see plenty of folks in jeans and  t-shirts, and you will see others wearing suits and dresses. Whatever you wear, you will fit right in. Don't forget to head to Guest Services in the main foyer inside Door 'B' for answers to all of your questions about our children's ministry, restrooms, service times, a welcome gift, and more. Our team will be happy to help with any questions you may have and would love to help you get involved at FCC. We can't wait to meet you.

Music Highlights with Joel Reid & band

Music, drama, and even stage design has been used for centuries to point people towards God and help them to grow as disciples of Christ. Whether you sing, play an instrument, have a love of acting or have skills with technology, we provide a number of different ways for you to serve! If you are interested in being a part of the worship and arts ministry, the biggest requirement is a heart to serve. Excellence is something that we endeavor for in all parts of our ministry.
