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

Think back to what Christmas was like when you were a you remember what you were told about the kids whose names ended up on the Naughty List? Those bad boys and girls got Nothing For Christmas! 

In this new teaching series, the coming of Jesus Christ outshines our failing efforts to be good boys and girls. The good news of Christmas is that Jesus is for everyone!

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!

One At A Time with Kyle Idleman

We want to make a difference in the world, but there are so many opinions on the way to do that. Without a doubt, Jesus is the person who has made the biggest difference in all of history. So, how did Jesus make such a difference in this world? One life at a time! That’s it. That’s the secret of the way of Jesus. This Bible Class meets on Sundays, at 9:30 am in the Library.


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 begins on Sunday, December 3, at 9:30 am in the Community Room. Contact Kyle Thatcher if you would like to attend.

Kingdom Kids

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

Little Lambs

During Sunday School and the sermon, Kids 2 year old-Pre K are invited to join  Little lambs and discover Jesus the Good Shepherd! We also have our nursery available to provide childcare for infants and toddlers!

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.
