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

We know that God often uses people who are deeply rooted in their faith to make a difference in the world! A life built on Jesus overflows with both purpose and meaning. The Bible compares this kind of spiritual connection to a vine with many branches. The vine provides the nourishment and power for the branches to produce a wonderful harvest. Join us this September to see how the depth of our faith directly impacts the outcomes in our lives in our new teaching series Rooted!

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!

"The first line of ministry takes place with greeters." Offering a warm welcome to the people that enter the doors of our church building is so important each week. Such a simple act of love and hospitality may give our church the opportunity to share the Gospel with someone on a regular basis! Our church staff is looking for men, women, and families that are committed to this mission and will serve on our Connect Team here at Clay Center Christian. If you would like to learn more, we're inviting you to join us for dessert on Wednesday, October 4 at 7 pm in the Fellowship Hall!

"This is a Festival of Awesome. In the Autumn." Join us on Sunday, October 29 from 3-5 pm for our annual fall event.

The Book of Romans

The book of Romans is considered by many to be one of the most important books ever written on the Christian faith. 
Join pastor J.D. Greear in this series where he walks, chapter by chapter, through the first half of Paul’s letter to the church in Rome. Discover the timeless relevance of the book of Romans and encounter the power of its gospel.

The Gospel of Mark with Francis Chan
The Gospel of Mark chronicles Jesus’s journey from Galilee to Jerusalem. Along the way, the Messiah gathers a ragged band of disciples. As crowds grow and dwindle on the road to Jerusalem, only a few stick by the Suffering Savior on the road of discipleship. 

In this 11-week devotional on the Gospel of Mark, author and speaker Francis Chan invites us to walk with him along the ancient ways of the Master. Tracing the steps of Jesus and the Twelve through Israel, Francis explores the major themes of the Gospel of Mark, and asks: Are we willing to take this journey to embrace discipleship?

Love in Chaos with Bob Goff

Good News for a Divided Culture

We don’t have to look far to see division in our world. And in many ways, we are confused, angry, and disillusioned by all the chaos we’re experiencing. How should Christians respond to the chaos? What does it look like to live faithfully in these strange and challenging times? Learn what it looks like to follow Jesus and obey his commands even in a time of chaos.

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.
