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

"And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together." 

For its size, the book of Colossians packs quite a punch! The Colossian church was under tremendous pressure from outside influences. Some wanted the church to adopt more culturally accepted philosophies, while others urged them to conform to a stricter adoption of more traditional religious practices. In the face of these outside influences, Paul's letter centers and raises the  conversation towards the sufficiency of Christ to save and transform our lives!

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!

Join us on this 5-day prayer challenge as we pray for our friends and neighbors while walking through the streets of our cities! There will be a daily devotion provided along with prayer cards to prepare you for your walks each day. Our prayer is that God will open our eyes to the relationships that can be built and the needs that can be met in our communities, so we can share the Good News "as we go" through life! To join the Walk Your City challenge contact Pastor Arick.

As kids explore a world of concrete and cranes, rivets and rebar, bulldozers and backhoes, they will learn to build their faith on Jesus as they uncover the truth that He who began a good work will be faithful to carry it on to completion. VBS will take place Thursday, July 29, Friday, July 30, from 6-8:30 pm, and Saturday, July 31, from 8:30 am-2:30 pm. A simple lunch will be provided on Saturday between 11:00 am and Noon. Parents are more than welcome to join us for the meal! The Sunday following our VBS, Sunday, August 1, at 10:30 am, we will take a small portion of our normally scheduled service time to have the children share some songs and what they learned from their VBS experience. Please feel free to join us that day as well to celebrate the kids and week! All kids 4-year-old-leaving 5th grade are invited. Online          registration is now open at the church website or church Facebook page.

We are currently offering Bible Classes for all ages.

The story of Jonah is many things. First and foremost, it's a story about God and His mission. To journey through the book of Jonah is to go on a long walk into the heart of God and His passion for making Himself known to all people! 

Living in an Icon
Spending time in creation is a great way to reflect and grow closer to our Creator. Join Rita Brhel in learning through nature on how to develop a contemplative, fulfilling prayer life.

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.
