“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!

- We still need lots of desserts, pans of stuffing and mashed potatoes.
- There is still time to fill a food box and bring it to the church building by Saturday morning. CLICK HERE for a list of food items.

Come enjoy some chili before church on Wednesday, December 11 and help raise funds for Grant Buehrer’s Eagle Scout project. Grant is raising money to build a swing at Camp Neotez. There will be a variety of chili, crackers, cornbread, and salad. Dinner will be served at 6:00pm. Treat your cook to dinner and help Grant meet his goal. Recommended donation is $3.00 per person. Additional checks can be written to Camp Neotez and receipts will be sent to you.
Overnight we received some dry snow with light accumulations of varying amounts across the region. I have just driven from home to the Lafayette campus.
- Side roads have a light snow covering.
- The major roads I traveled (Baxter, Clarkson, and Manchester) were in good shape.
- The church parking lot has been plowed and de-icer has been applied.
Looking at the weather forecast, it seems we could get a few additional snow showers, but nothing major is predicted. The biggest potential problem seems to be the possibility of some freezing drizzle predicted to begin as early as noon or as late as 5:00pm (depending on which forecast you read).
This being said, we plan to have our gathering at Lafayette as scheduled at 9:00am. Lafayette members drive to our gatherings each week from at least 29 cities across the region. Road conditions can vary. Please keep that in mind as you decide whether or not to drive today.
Reminder — you can read our inclement weather policy here.
The 3rd-5th grade activity scheduled for December 7 has been postponed.

“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
