“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. 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.
We meet Sundays at 9:00am for worship with Bible classes following. For more information about gathering times, click here.
May God’s grace and peace be yours in abundance!

The response to our current Wednesday night series on prayer has been positive and strong. Tonight’s topic may be the very best yet — “Keeping Company with God.”
All adults are invited to hear a fresh new perspective on prayer tonight in the worship center from 7:00-7:55pm. The class will feature video clips and class conversation.
We are looking forward to a good night together at Lafayette!
“Why Pray?” That’s the question being addressed tonight in the adult class that meets in the worship center. We will again be watching a DVD presentation by Philip Yancey that will serve as a conversation starter.
The teens will meet in their small groups as they study what it means to live as hosts instead of guests and taking the initiative to be ambassadors for Christ.
Dave Wilhelm and Jan Johnson will be leading the children’s groups tonight.
Hope you can join us!
Prayer is important at Lafayette. Adults are encouraged to participate in a new class entitled, “Prayer: does it make any difference?” This seven session study will begin on Wednesday night, September 9 and conclude on October 21. The class will feature class discussion based on video clips by Philip Yancey. If God knows everything, what’s the point of prayer? Why do answers to prayer seem so inconsistent and capricious? These and other questions will be considered.
We will have a special time of fellowship on Sunday, September 6. At the conclusion of our worship gathering all are invited to enjoy a relaxed meet and greet time in our foyer and kitchen areas. Breakfast drinks and goodies will be served for about an hour to give us time to enjoy conversation. Our classes for all ages will resume meeting on September 13. This is a great opportunity to get acquainted with some folks and get caught up with others.
God is at work! Tonight at Lafayette the Honduras Mission Team will share with the church stories about their recent trip. We will hear stories about how God is working in Honduras. We will hear stories about how God is working in the hearts of the team members. We will begin at 7:00pm in the worship center and conclude by 7:55.
The Lafayette Church of Christ will not be meeting on Wednesday night, July 22. Our regular Wednesday night schedule resumes next Wednesday, July 29.
We have a special schedule for Wednesday, July 8. Our entire church family will meet at 6:00pm for a special send-off for our short-term mission team to Honduras. We will enjoy hot dogs and s’mores ($3.00 each). Weather permitting we will be outside around the fire pit, so you might want to bring lawn chairs. In case of rain we will move inside. Don’t miss this special family time! We will dismiss no later than 7:30pm.
Tonight at Lafayette classes are offered for all ages. The teens will gather in the EPICenter. The children will gather in their classrooms. The adults will gather in the worship center for the first of five sessions of “Living in Exile: a reading of 1 Peter” taught by Bob Clark. How does a church live as the community of God in the midst of an ungodly world? How does the church respond when the culture in which it lives grows increasing secular or other than Christian? These and other questions will be explored as the class reads 1 Peter.
