At Clay Center Christian we are not a church full of perfect people,

but we are a community committed to knowing God more deeply and finding a simple and honest kind of faithfulness together! 


Simply put, we are here to help people know and love Jesus!  

We believe that the church is so much more than just a service on Sunday mornings.

We believe that our faith matters each and every day of our week and so we trust the Bible to be our guide towards knowing God deeply and following Jesus more closely!

Welcome to


Making Disciples, Building Community, Uniting Families & Loving Neighbors

Know Jesus.
Know Good News.

"And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.  Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.

I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."  

1 John 5:11-13


Sunday Mornings at 10:30 am

What can you do when it feels like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Where can you turn when your life is falling apart? How do you move on when you’ve lost it all? Join us at Clay Center Christian on Sunday, January 30, as we begin a study of the life of Job and finding hope when we feel stuck in our suffering and brokenness.

Each Sunday we gather together as a church community to worship, pray, and study God's word! Our people and meeting space are casual and family-friendly.  You are welcome here!

Studies show that 80% of all
church-goers want to know the Bible better, yet more and more of them feel like they have less and less time to do so. So how do we help busy people engage the word of God? Core52. Through five short exercises each week, participants will study the fifty-two most influential verses in the Bible, allowing them to grasp a faithful representation of the Bible's full message. Core52 starts Sunday, January 30 at 9:30 am. If you are interested in participating in this study, contact the churc
h office.

When Strivings Cease

A new Bible Class for women starting Sunday, January 30 at 9:30 am. When Strivings Cease by Ruth Chou Simons is an invitation to re-think our preoccupation with approval and the striving that comes because we feel like we’re forever missing the mark. It offers a deeper, abiding understanding of what God’s generous, unmerited favor really accomplishes in and through us when we receive the gift of grace. This 6-week study is an invitation to find freedom from anxious striving and fuel for living loved and transformed. If you're interested in joining this study, contact Kacy Johanson or Kelly Ferguson.

Our Story

At Clay Center Christian, we believe that our story as a church

is just another example of the greater story of God’s faithfulness and grace given to mankind through our Savior and King, Jesus Christ!  God has blessed our church with almost 150 years of faithful ministry and by His grace we will continue to love and serve the people of this region!

Clay Christian Church was founded in 1875 as a

non-denominational church of the Restoration Movement.  In an effort to restore churches to their New Testament roots, the Restoration Movement emphasized the importance of Scripture as the church's sole authority, the practice of baptism by immersion, and the regular celebration of the Lord's Supper which is open to all followers of Jesus.
