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

Current Series  - Heart of God

Where is God leading you? We all want to trust that God has a plan and a purpose for our lives, but how do we know for certain what that looks like in our lives and what are the necessary steps we must take to get there? The key to understanding all that God desires for us is to know and understand His heart for us, His children. In this new series, we'll look at the beginning and end of Jesus' ministry on earth to better understand the direction God wants for 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!

Bible Classes on Sundays morning will be held at 9 am and will run until 10 am. This will make those class times a priority, providing time for better content and meaningful discussion. If you can’t meet with a Life Group during the week, Sunday morning would be a great time to make that happen. At 10 am, we will have time for coffee and fellowship as we connect and grow together as a church!

The Book of Ephesians 

Ephesians is a survival manual—it equips believers to thrive in a world that hates the  message of Jesus Christ. Paul the Apostle writes to encourage believers to live well—we've been lifted from the graveyard of sin and called to shout the gospel into the darkened world. Pastor and author J.D. Greear digs into the text of Ephesians verse-by-verse and challenges believers to live out the gospel! This Bible Class meets on Sundays, at 9 am, in the Community Room.

The Bible Recap 2024
The Bible Recap is year-long Bible reading plan that consists of about two pages of Bible reading and a short follow-up podcast or video (about 8 minutes) each day. Every Sunday, we'll gather together to share insights from our Bible reading and discuss it in a casual, easy to understand way!
This Bible Class meets on Sundays, at 9 am, in Classroom One.

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.
