“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!

As we continue to deal with the aftermath of an electrical power failure last Saturday, we have planned the following for The Middle (Wednesdays at Lafayette) on July 24.
Mike, Garrett, and Emma have a special night planned for the teens who are in town.
The children will meet in the air conditioned Big Room.
The adults will meet in the worship center (with a big fan to help keep things bearable) to watch a brief video introducing 2 Thessalonians and have conversation based on the last week’s readings from Acts of Apostles.
Hope you can join us at 7:00pm.
Join us for a meal at 6:30pm followed by a time of prayer to send off our short term mission team to Honduras. Regular class schedule resumes next week.
Tonight in The Middle (Wednesdays at Lafayette) children will be in their classrooms, teens in the EPICenter, and adults in the fellowship hall. Tonight adults will begin a new study, 1 and 2 Thessalonians: Readings and Responses. Reading guides will be handed out tonight to those who have not yet gotten one.
We are in a “slight risk” area for thunderstorms. Use discretion in determining whether you should be driving in the conditions that present in your area.

All are invited to join us for dinner tonight at Chipotle in Ellisville. We will enjoy burritos or bowls and conversation before heading to the Lafayette campus for The Middle at 7:00pm.
