“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!
