“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!

A winter weather watch is in effect beginning at 9:00am on Sunday, December 15. Lafayette is planning to meet for classes at 9:00am and worship at 10:00am as scheduled since the snow is not expected to begin until around noon. We are planning to wrap up our gathering a little earlier than usual to allow a little extra time for travelling home.
Here is Lafayette’s complete inclement weather policy, as a reminder–
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. Cancellation or rescheduling is announced on this website’s homepage, on our Facebook page, by text messages to members who have elected to receive texts, 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 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.
The Lafayette Church of Christ Tuesday Bible Study for Women follows the Rockwood School System’s lead regarding inclement weather.
