I'm New!

I'm New!

When you come on a Sunday morning, you will receive a church bulletin from an usher as you enter the sanctuary and you might prepare for worship by greeting, sharing, and laughing with one another - or, you might choose to sit quietly and listen to the music. The usher can help you find the nursery, learn about Sunday school, secure hearing assist devices, and so on. All of our services are live-streamed and you are welcome to worship with us in that way. We also have occasional services outside, shaded by a lovely grove of trees on the back of our campus. Of course, you’re welcome to just show up to an event or worship service. We’re pretty confident you will run into old friends or meet some new ones. If you’d like to meet someone for a campus tour, ask a pastor some questions, or want to see what we’re up to, please don’t hesitate to send an email to Julie in the office.

What to Expect


It is our prayer that, through our ministry, your children will learn to live creatively, joyously and harmoniously with Christ who is, who was, and who will forever be! We hope that your children will come to know the joy and suffering of being concerned about everyone they meet; that they will see each person worthy of dignity and acceptance. We hope for them a growth into fuller and deeper levels of humanity as expressed through Jesus. All children are encouraged to attend worship with their parents. We also have Sunday School that begins after the children's moment. If your child would like to attend Sunday School, they can leave with the children and teachers at that time. Our wonderful nursery staff is available to care for your infants and toddlers during the Sunday school and worship hours. You may leave your little ones with our dedicated staff before worship and check-in as often as you wish. The nursery is located just down the hallway on the pulpit side of the sanctuary. Ushers will be happy to direct you there.

At Red Clay, we endeavor to cultivate a youth ministry that joins God in nurturing youth that they will understand that God alone can give life meaning and purpose and direction; and that throughout their journey of faith they will be on their knees before God with words of thanksgiving; and on their feet for God with deeds of love. Our youth ministry program includes a multi-generational pick-up pickle ball game on most Sunday nights at 6:30 pm in Founders Hall, a growing drama and music program, retreats, and outings. We also have an annual service/ mission trip that is geared toward the youth.

At Red Clay we seek to build friendships with one another through a wide range of small groups, craft and quilting groups, Bible studies, and classes taught by our members, pastors, and guest speakers throughout the year. In addition, adults are invited on mission trips and pilgrimages as a way to continue to learn about our faith and build community. In spring of 2024, we will be traveling to the Holy Land.

Serve Local

We find that most people desire to join God in mission and develop Christ-like friendships, but need help getting started. Through our many programs we connect followers of Christ to local mission partners. We have special relationships with Friendship House, Meeting Ground, Food Bank of Delaware, Emmanuel Dining Room, Quilts for Comfort, and the list goes on. We are also very proud of our "Roots & Rays" service challenge. The challenge is a yearly month-long initiative, that was born in January of 2023 for the purposes of engaging our congregation and greater community in meaningful and creative service to those in need in our area and beyond. Rooted in our devotion to putting the words of Matthew 25: 34-36 into action, we look to feed, clothe, care for, and visit those who could use a loving hand. We believe that our annual Service Challenge is an incredible tool for bringing our congregation together in service, and also for connecting us in friendship to other local churches and to the outside community.

Serve Regional

Red Clay has a strong tradition of taking mission on the road, and short-term mission trips are a big part of that tradition. Each year volunteers - young and old - donate a week of time to go to different areas of the country to build relationships and offer assistance with emergency housing needs. We find that God uses these trips to transform our partners, our hearts, and our community- We are encouraged in our work daily by the hospitality and graciousness that we receive from our partners. “I can’t believe you came all this way to help me.” This is one of the most common phrases that we hear from the folks that we meet. Additionally, our hearts are transformed over and over again, as mission trippers return home with new friendships, and new hope for how God is working in the world. Finally, our church community is strengthened by the cross-generational relationships formed on our trips. When we travel together, we find our way home together. Through the trips, God gives the gift of a church home to people of all walks of life.

Serve Global

We believe that God is encouraging us to make Christ-like friendships with people all over the world. We are mutually enriched when we intentionally pray, read scripture, and work on projects together. For decades we have partnered with CEDCAS, a health clinic in Costa Rica. Since 2010, we have partnered with communities in South Africa. Since 2014, we have partnered with the Center for Development in Central America (CDCA). We look forward to trips to visit with our partners and friends beginning in the winter of 2024.
