Grace and Peace

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 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!

The Gathering, January 27

Gathering is a primary part of the discipleship rhythm at Lafayette. We gather to worship our God and in so doing encourage one another and prepare to scatter throughout the week.

We will have our regular schedule today.

Our classes begin at 9:00am. Adults will continue The Jesus Style: Jesus and Leadership with a look metaphors and roles of service in the Old Testament (prophet, priest, and shepherd).

Our worship gathering will begin at 10:00am with a message from Luke’s gospel.

LTC practice begins at noon. Worship at Mason Pointe begins at 3:15pm.

There are a few scattered snow showers in the area, and some areas are reporting sleet and freezing rain. If you can safely travel, the building will be warm and the coffee hot. Dress warmly and remember this time of year to be on the lookout for patches of ice on roads, sidewalks, and parking lots. Our entire inclement weather policy can be read here.

Looking forward to our time together!

Regular schedule on Sunday, January 20

On any given Sunday morning I wake up excited to be with my church family. How much more this week, after snow canceled our gathering last week!

Our classes begin at 9:00am. Adults will begin a new section of The Jesus Style: Jesus and Leadership with a look at calls to service in the Old Testament. Some passages will look familiar, others may be new to you.

Our worship gathering will begin at 10:00am with a fresh look at a familiar passage
(1 Corinthians 12:1-11) and a special prayer as we send out one of our sisters into the mission field.

LTC practice begins at noon. Worship at Mason Pointe begins at 3:15pm.

I am ready to get back into my routine (gather, scatter, rest). It’s really cold outside, so be prepared! The building will be warm. The coffee will be hot. Dress warmly and remember this time of year to be on the lookout for patches of ice on roads, sidewalks, and parking lots. Our entire inclement weather policy can be read here.

Looking forward to our time together!
