COVID Policy Update – Masks Required

Due to the recent surge of COVID cases in St Louis (and everywhere) and the recent face-covering order by St. Louis County, the Health and Safety Team was asked to meet to review our current COVID policy. As a result of their meeting Saturday afternoon, the Lafayette leadership is asking that everyone plan to wear a mask at all times for all of our gatherings until further notice. 

In addition to current practices, we will not be serving coffee on Sundays and we will offer a first dismissal before the closing song for those who are uncomfortable interacting with others in large gatherings. 

The team will continue to evaluate the status of the current surge and work with the leadership to keep our church community as safe as possible.

Inclement Weather Policy

During winter months we face inclement weather from extreme cold to snow and ice. At other times we face severe storms and the high probability of tornadic activity. Weather events may result in the cancellation or rescheduling of gatherings planned at Lafayette. The decision to cancel or reschedule will be posted on this website’s homepage by 3 hours before the service begins (6 AM on normal schedule Sundays, 7 AM on a holiday schedule Sunday, and by 4 PM on a Wednesday). We will also announce on our Facebook page, email messages, and a phone call to the Superset leaders.

While cancellations may be prudent in some extreme cases, please keep in mind a couple of things. Just because an event has not been cancelled does not mean you have to get out. In the event of a canceled live service on a Sunday, we will most likely provide a virtual option. We will post instructions with the details for a virtual gathering at that time. In some situations it might be wise for you to stay home. You know your health concerns, and the driving challenges you face better than anyone. So, please use good judgment in deciding whether or not to get out of the house and onto the road.
