“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!

Due to the winter storm and resulting road conditions, all activities scheduled for March 1 have been cancelled (worship, LTC, bridal shower).
The snow day is a good day to catch up on something you might have missed recently.

St. Louis is under a winter storm warning effective noon on February 28 until 6:00pm on March 1. The snow has already begun and forecasts are calling for up to nine inches before it stops tomorrow. However, as we know, that can change quickly and unexpectedly.
Sixteen Lafayette members scattered around the region will be providing weather spotting and road condition intelligence early Sunday morning. Based on their recommendations, a decision will be made about whether or not to have our scheduled events — worship gathering, LTC practice, and bridal shower.
The decision will be posted here by 7:00am on Sunday, March 1.

Lafayette is involved in a program of spiritual exercises leading up to Easter Sunday. Each week we have daily exercises that include Bible reading and reflection, prayer, and action. While working through the entire week of exercises at one sitting is better than not doing it at all, for best results, complete the exercises one per day.
Week 1 for February 14-20
Spiritual Exercises week 1
Week 2 for February 21-27
Spiritual Exercises week 2
Week 3 for March 1-7
Spiritual Exercises week 3
Due to the uncertainty of the weather situation, the Game Night scheduled for February 28 has been cancelled.
I hope everyone will stay warm and safe.
So thankful the opportunities for growth teenEPIC (the Lafayette youth group) had at Winterfest 2015. And we are so grateful they arrived home safely.
Here are some photos from the teenEPIC trip to Winterfest in Gatlinburg, TN.
Lafayette Church of Christ has cancelled all activities scheduled for Wednesday night, February 4. While we do not expect to have a significant snowfall, the timing of this freezing rain and snow and the icing of driveways, sidewalks, and parking lots has led to this decision. We have also heard from several members about road conditions. Thanks to all for the input. Please be safe tonight.
During winter months we face inclement weather from extreme cold to snow and ice. At other times we face severe storms and the high probability of tornadic activity. Weather events may result in the cancellation or rescheduling of gatherings planned at Lafayette. Cancellation or rescheduling is announced on this website’s homepage, on our Facebook page, by text messages to teens and their parents, email messages, and a phone call to the Superset leaders.
While cancellations may be prudent in some extreme cases, please keep in mind a couple of things. Just because an event has not been cancelled does not mean you have to get out. In some situations it might be wise for you to stay home. You know your health concerns, and the driving challenges you face better than anyone. So, please use good judgment in deciding whether or not to get out of the house and onto the road.
