“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!

After a break last Wednesday night, The Middle (Wednesdays at Lafayette) resumes tonight at 7:00pm. In addition to classes for elementary students and teens, there will be a class for young children.
Tonight the adults will begin a four-session class entitled, Holy Days and Holidays in the fellowship hall.
The Lafayette Church of Christ will not have any on-campus classes on Wednesday, November 21. The church is encouraged to rest and enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Winter Storm Warning tells us we are going to get some snow, maybe a lot of snow, but it is not forecast to begin until later in the evening. So join us for The Middle tonight. Children have classes in their regular rooms. Teens will be in the EPICenter. Adults will be in the fellowship hall for the finale of Our Restoration Roots with a look at documents and sermons associated with three familiar names — Barton W. Stone, Alexander Campbell, and N. B. Hardeman.

Our discipleship rhythms at Lafayette include gathering, scattering, and resting. While The Middle (our Wednesday night classes) is an important element of our gathering rhythm, we also recognize that this Wednesday, October 31st is a prime time that the majority of our neighbors themselves will be scattering, interacting, and sharing community together. Rather than gathering for The Middle this week, then, we encourage Lafayette members to scatter and to be a positive, neighborly presence in our communities.
Tonight in The Middle (Wednesdays at Lafayette) adults will enjoy the second of four sessions on Our Restoration Roots, a class exploring the story of churches of Christ. This week in the fellowship hall at 7:00pm, Kyle Johnson will present and lead discussion on Two Ideals and One Reality: Unity, Restoration, and Division (19th century).
But first, come and share a meal of chicken fingers with your brothers and sisters at Raising Cane’s in Ellisville, beginning at 5:45pm.
A new class for adults begins tonight in The Middle (Wednesdays at Lafayette). Our Restoration Roots is a four-session look at the story of churches of Christ. Kyle Johnson will be presenting and leading the discussion. Getting to Know Our Family Tree: 1st-18th century is the lesson for tonight.
9:00am (Sharp!) Two weeks ago Dan Roper and Kyle Johnson introduced the new adult class, Significant Others. Sunday we dig in for a session that will help all of us learn to understand and interact with our neighbors who are involved in non-Christian religions. In addition to the adult class, there are classes for children and teens.
10:00am We will meet together for Table and Word, with a message from Mark 9:30-37. We will worship God in song. We will worship God with our tithes and offerings. And…we will welcome two new families.
3:15pm Worship at Mason Pointe Care Center
Tonight in The Middle (Wednesdays at Lafayette) the adult class will be sharing conversation on our daily reading through Acts of Apostles. Children’s classes will meet in the main building. The teens will meet in the EPICenter. The Middle begins at 7:00pm.
