“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.
Having received 8-12 inches of snow, being under a winter storm warning until 6:00am tomorrow, and expecting more snow and perhaps freezing drizzle overnight, Lafayette Church of Christ is cancelling the morning classes, worship gathering, and LTC practice for Sunday, January 13, 2019.
Please stay safe and if you are in need of help, please let somebody know!
After being on a special schedule several times during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season, we resume our regular schedule Wednesday night, January 2.
Teens will meet for small groups in the EPICenter. Children will be in their classrooms. Adults will meet in the fellowship hall as Kyle Johnson leads the first week of a special series during January.
Just a reminder! There will be no on-campus meetings at Lafayette on Wednesday, December 26.
On Sunday, December 30 we have a special gathering planned at 10:00am with our elders presenting a special message for the church. We will be on our holiday schedule, so we will not be having our classes.
9:00am Cider Sunday Lourene and I invite you to join us for Cider Sunday. We will be serving bagels, donuts, pastry rings, fruit, breakfast casseroles, coffee, hot cider, hot chocolate, and other goodies. You don’t need to bring anything, just come prepared to eat, drink, and enjoy some relaxed time of conversation and holiday greetings.
10:00am We will greet and encourage each other with the love of the Lord. We will meet together for Table and Word. We will worship God in song. We will worship God with our tithes and offerings. We will open our hands and hearts to one another. We will give thanks to God. We will spend time together in the presence of God. Austin Gray will lead our time at the table. Jim Zeller will continue the elders’ teaching from 2 Corinthians 8-9 at the offering. John Collett will share, “I’m thankful for….”
Tonight in “The Middle” (Wednesdays at Lafayette), the adults will meet in the worship center for the concluding session of “Holy Days and Holidays,” the teens will meet in the EPICenter for small groups, and the children will meet in their classrooms. All the classes begin at 7:00pm.
