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

There's a lot of uncertainty in our world. The winds of change keep blowing and troubles rise like water all do we establish an unshakeable faith that steadies our lives, our families, and our churches in the midst of such turmoil?

We're starting a new series this Sunday, September 19 called Solid Ground! We'll highlight foundational truths that are as timeless as our God who gave them to us.

This would be a great time to connect with our church or to invite someone to join you! Are you standing on Solid Ground???

24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." - Matthew 7

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!

On Sunday, September 12, cap off your Old Trusty weekend with us at Clay Center Christian with a special Family Sunday! We'll start with a pancake breakfast starting at 9 am. Worship will still be at 10:30 am. We hope you'll join us for food, community, and sharing in God's word!

Then for our Family Connect event, we'll have lanes available for bowling on Sunday evening at Pastime Lanes in Hastings from 5:30 - 7:30 pm! 

At Clay Center Christian we believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. It is relevant to our everyday lives and it is our ultimate authority for all things. We want to help people connect to God through a deeper understanding and appreciation of His word! One to One Bible Reading is a simple and flexible tool to help people do that. On Wednesday, August 25 at 7 pm we will provide training and resources to help participants read the Bible effectively and grow in their ability to also help others read and understand the Bible! Contact Pastor Arick if you're interested in participating!

We are currently offering Bible Classes for all ages.

Kids from Pre-K (Age 3+) through 5th grade are invited to join Kingdom Kids! 

Kingdom Kids is fun for kids of every age mixing games, music, and an exciting Bible lesson!

Our Nursery is available for infants to children 2 years old.


The Story of God

We live in stories. Stories are the language of our world. Stories speak to the mind, the body, the emotions—our spirits.

Together we learn about ourselves, about the world around us, and about God as we connect through stories. The Story of God is a ten-week journey through God's word that serves as a foundation for new disciples and gives more mature disciples an easy, reproducible method for introducing others to the claims of Christ and what it means to be a disciple.

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.
