First Christian Sarasota has nearly a century of history in the Sarasota area. In 1926, a group of members worshipped in the recreation Hall of the Old City Pier. For 24 years the church grew and in 1950 a newly constructed building became the downtown home of FCC. For many years, the church on North Washington and Links Ave. was a landmark in downtown Sarasota. But, as the downtown population grew, it made parking and room for church growth more difficult. In 2000, First Christian moved to our current property located 2 miles East of I-75 on Clark Road. With 13 peaceful acres of land, there is ample room for growth for many years to come.
