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.

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!

Get ready for Sunday!

Get ready for Sunday at Lafayette!
Read James 4:1-6 to prepare your heart for our worship gathering.
We had some work done this week. Make sure you do not drive on our newly poured concrete sidewalk, the thin layer of concrete is easily crushed by the weight of a vehicle. Bring a sweater if you are cold-natured. Yes, the air conditioner finally has been repaired.
And don’t forget —
We gather to worship God. We scatter to reflect God!

Construction Update

Our neighbor, Decorative Concrete, is resurfacing the sidewalks in front of our main entrances. Today their work was interrupted by the rain. Instead of having them take down the door coverings, we are asking everyone coming to adult and children’s Bible classes this evening to use the south entrance; aka, the Lafayette Christian Preschool entrance.

The adult class will continue the Becoming People of Grace conversation, with a couple of brief video clips, a reading from Jesus, and a prayer of confession.

SummerJAM

Blur.jpgHow did we pack 10,704 meals in a little over an hour? Why do you think this photo of Kara, Amber, Kim, and Kathy is blurry?!?

Malachi Brown preaches in our gathering today.

After our gathering, SummerJAM wraps with another Bible lesson in word and action followed by lunch and snow cones.

What a weekend!

Float Trip

At Lafayette we believe it is important for us to know each other and be connected in the body of Christ. Toward that end you are encouraged to make plans now for the all-church float trip scheduled for Saturday, July 16. This is an easy, relaxing float on the Meramec River and all are welcome! Your choice of canoe, raft, or kayak. Cost is $25 per person — bring cash the day of the float (we have to do one cash transaction when we get there). Meet at commuter parking lot in Eureka at 8:00am and we will carpool to Steeleville. Pack your lunch, drinks and sunscreen. For those who want to, we will get dinner in Cuba before we head back. See Cindy or Kevin Fields for more information. You can sign up here.
