“Grace to you and peace from God our father and the Lord Jesus Christ” (Philemon 3).
Grace and peace. These two simple, yet dynamic words have been used as a Christian greeting from ancient times. And with grace and peace I greet you on behalf of the Lafayette Church of Christ. I am thankful you found our web page. Whether you are in St. Louis to see the Cardinals, the Rams, the Blues, the Zoo, one of the many museums, or you are moving to the St. Louis area, I hope you will consider these pages your invitation to connect with God’s family at Lafayette.
Whether you are searching for God or God’s family, please let us know if there are specific ways we can help. If you are looking for a church away from home with whom you can visit one Sunday, we invite you to come to one of our gatherings. If you are searching for a church home where you can settle down and experience genuine community, we invite you to join us on the journey of discipleship.
May God’s grace and peace be yours in abundance!

Join your church family Saturday as we enjoy a float trip on the Meramec River. This is our last scheduled float trip of the year. For more information call the church office today (Thursday, August 21) from 8:00am-1:00pm.
Join us for Cook’s Night Out on Wednesday, August 20. Pizza and salad will be served from 6:00-6:45pm. The cost is $3.00 per person. Cash only. Great night for dinner and conversation before Bible classes!
Last Wednesday night we began a new Bible class for adults that will meet for the next 5 Wednesdays. The Cry of My Soul will feature weekly conversations about daily readings in the Psalms. The conversations will be shaped by some guiding questions that we are asking before we read our daily psalms.
If you are not a reader, you might want to try listening to the psalms each day by using the audio feature on biblegateway.com
. It doesn’t take long to read five psalms per day. And just a reminder, don’t say you don’t have time if you are reading a novel or watching television for 30 minutes or an hour. ;-)
I am really looking forward to our conversations together in the worship center on Wednesdays at 7:00pm.
When: Aug 3, immediately following Bible class
Where: Bluebird Park, Lions Pavilion
Join us for food and fellowship! The reserved pavilion is adjacent to plenty of parking, restrooms, and the playground. A paved walkway from the parking lot provides easy access. Bring a lawn chair and sunblock.

Join in the fun on Wednesday, June 4. Meals will be served from 5:45-6:45pm. The cost is just $3.00 per person (cash only).
Plans for the Pig Roast (June 13-14, 4:30-8:00 p.m.) are well underway! Those interested in helping with the roasting on Friday night/Saturday morning should see Kevin Fields. Activities planned include a Washers Tournament and musical entertainment by some of our very own young talented musicians. Meat, beverages and dessert will be provided. Everyone should plan to bring a side dish or appetizer, as well as lawn chairs. Plan to invite your friends and neighbors! Please RSVP (click here)or contact Kevin Fields or Kathy Zeller by Sunday, June 8th.
Each year at this time Lafayette takes time to do daily spiritual exercises together. This year we are working on spiritual exercises to encourage our relationship with God and others by Finding Our Rhythm.
Like most exercise programs, the greatest benefit comes when we exercise a little each day as opposed to cramming in a long program on one day. so I encourage you to read the sections daily and slow down long enough to spend time reflecting on the reading and taking action in your life.
