“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!

At 6:30pm the teens will meet in the EPICenter for Bridges of Faith with Daryl and Janice McFarland.
At 7:00pm the Bible class for women continues in the worship center, Dan Roper teaches the Gospel of John in the fellowship hall, and children’s classes meet in their classrooms.
At 8:05pm prayer huddles for children, teens, and adults will meet, with Kyle Johnson leading in the foyer, Les Keim leading in the fellowship hall, and Jackie Roland leading in the prayer room.
Tonight in “The Middle” at Lafayette we will have middle school and high school small groups in the EPICenter, classes for children in classrooms, Daring Faith (a study of the gospel of John for adults) in the fellowship hall, and “Let My People Go” in the Bible Study for Women in the worship center — all followed by prayer huddles in the fellowship hall, foyer, and prayer room.
Tonight in The Middle, Jim Zeller will lead the adult class on The Gospel of John in the fellowship hall (read John 13:12-17!), children’s classes will meet on the main campus, and small groups for teens will meet in the EPICenter. Don’t miss The Middle, tonight at 7:00pm at Lafayette!
On Sundays we gather to worship God. On Mondays we scatter to reflect God. And in The Middle, we get together on Wednesdays to encourage one another as we reflect God through the week. Tonight at Lafayette all ages are invited to Table Talk in the worship center. We will begin serving chili at 5:45pm and will begin inter-generational table conversations after all have had opportunity to eat. We plan to wrap up about 7:30pm. The cost for chili is $5.00 per person with a family max of $15.00.
How do we live out faith in a prolonged season of pain, trouble, and loss? In this class we seek to recover a lost ancient resource for people of faith — the language of lament. Bob Clark will lead a four week multi-media introduction to the Psalms before being joined by a panel of men and women to work through the lament Psalms. This adult study begins Sunday, September 24 in the worship center, 15 minutes after the worship gathering concludes.
