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….”

Our discipleship rhythms at Lafayette include gathering, scattering, and resting. While The Middle (our Wednesday night classes) is an important element of our gathering rhythm, we also recognize that this Wednesday, October 31st is a prime time that the majority of our neighbors themselves will be scattering, interacting, and sharing community together. Rather than gathering for The Middle this week, then, we encourage Lafayette members to scatter and to be a positive, neighborly presence in our communities.
Tonight in The Middle (Wednesdays at Lafayette) adults will enjoy the second of four sessions on Our Restoration Roots, a class exploring the story of churches of Christ.
