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

True transformation is the outcome of Real Faith! Join us as we dig deeper into the book of James and discover how to put our faith into action and live a life of authentic obedience to God. Each week, we'll encounter the practical wisdom found in James and explore how it challenges and encourages us to live out our faith in a real and tangible way!

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 Twists & Turns VBS, kids (4 yrs - 5th grade) will learn games of all kinds. From classic tabletop games to video games and more, kids will play their way through VBS while learning that Jesus guides them through all the twists and turns of their lives. They'll find that even when they mess up it's never "game over."

VBS will take place Thursday, July 20, Friday, July 21, from 6-8:30 pm, and Saturday, July 22, from 9 am-12 pm. A simple lunch will be provided on Saturday at 12 pm. Parents are more than welcome to join us for the meal!



The Sunday following our VBS, Sunday, July 23, 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 celebrate the kids and a great week together!

Camp season is just around the corner! Make plans to attend camps at Pibel Bible Camp, Manna Camp, or Christian Resource Center. Registration is now open and the church will cover half of registration costs for all campers! Please see the camp websites for additional information.

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 Beatitudes

What does it mean to be blessed? And, more importantly, how do we become someone who is blessed? The kind of life God is calling us to may not look the way we imagined, but it will be better than we could have hoped. In this eight-session series, we'll study through the Beatitudes and see what it means to live in the kingdom of God. Through Jesus’s teaching, we'll learn what the blessed life really looks like. If you have any questions, talk to Kyle Thatcher.

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.
