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

Have you ever participated in this kind of conversation.... “Hi! How are you?”

“Oh, good…just busy.”

Corrie ten Boom once said, "If the devil cannot make us bad, he will make us busy.”

We’re starting a new teaching series called RHYTHMS! Maybe the best way to start our summer is to slow down and reconnect to the life-giving rhythms and disciplines God has created for us to join our hearts to His purposes!

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 Making Waves VBS, kids (4 yrs - 5th grade) will learn that what they do today can change the world around them. When we put your trust in Jesus, we can “make waves” because of His Spirit living inside us. Through fun activities, engaging lessons, and God’s Word, we’ll help kids understand how they can share God’s love with the people around them.

VBS will take place Thursday, July 21, Friday, July 22, from 6-8:30 pm, and Saturday, July 23, from 8:30 am-2:30 pm. A simple lunch will be provided on Saturday between 11 am-Noon. Parents are more than welcome to join us for the meal!

The Sunday following our VBS, Sunday, July 24, 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 we to celebrate the kids and a great week together!

We are currently offering Bible Classes for all ages. 

Kingdom Kids 

During Sunday School, kids from Pre-K (3+) through 5th grade are invited to join Kingdom Kids for games, music, and an exciting Bible lesson! Kingdom Kids (3+ to 3rd grade) can also meet for a fun activity during the sermon!

Through the Eyes Of A Lion

This study will help us understand how faith in the midst of loss and sorrow can give us a unique perspective and purpose. God can use our hardships to inspire others to see the bright future beyond their darkest days.

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.
