St .Jacob's church along State Street in North Canton

St. Jacob's openly welcomes all - regardless of race, gender, creed, nationality or sexual orientation - into our family of faith. We hope that you will visit and experience St. Jacob's for yourself, but until you are able, hopefully this page can give a small glimpse into some of what we have to offer.

A Short History

St. Jacob's Lutheran Church - a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America -  was established in 1847 and will celebrate it's 175th Anniversary in 2022.  We have a long-standing history of  being active in North Canton and the surrounding communities.

We are a quaint little church with a congregation of around 500 or so members. Located on State street between Market & Kent and surrounded by fields and wooded areas, St. Jacob's can be identified by it's classic steeple, and very pastoral setting. Our membership hosts a variety of both spiritual & social activities and there is sure to be something to appeal to everyone. 

We will Celebrate 175 Years in 2022.


We are centrally located between North Canton, Hartville and Uniontown. St. Jacob’s is located on the south side of State Street between Route 43 (Kent Avenue) and Market Avenue. We are approximately five miles east of the Akron Canton airport. Using a GPS devise, you may need to enter “Canton” as the city, although our postal designation is North Canton.
