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!

"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
Gospel Awkward: In this teaching series, we're admitting that we tend to avoid things that make us uncomfortable! We fear looking foolish or awkward in front of people. Yet the Gospel frequently challenges our comfort and Jesus often commands us to do things that go against our natural inclinations.
Jesus promises us that we will be blessed when we let go of what's comfortable and lean into the new life He's calling us to. Being Gospel Awkward is living by faith, and it is the only way in which we'll experience personal transformation as we deepen our trust in Jesus!
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!

At 10 am, we will have time for coffee and fellowship as we connect and grow together as a church!
The Book of Judges
The book of Judges cracks a window into the depths of the human soul. In this series, pastor and author J.D. Greear wades into the book of Judges as a nation struggles with its identity and relationship to its God. Heroes and heroines arise, who seem to have the potential to save Israel. But in the end, each proves to be a broken savior that cannot deliver. This Bible Class meets on Sundays, at 9 am, in the Community Room.
Now We Live: How Your Faith Can Restore a Broken World
Like all worldviews, Christianity influences our ideas, beliefs, convictions, and habits. The Christian worldview calls for action in all areas of life.

If you're interested in joining this study, you can sign up for this class in the Church Center app! This Bible Class starts Sunday, March 10 at 9 am in the Community Room.

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.
