Our gathering is live rather than pre-recorded!

We begin at 10:00am and end about 11:15am but you can enter as early as 9:30am and listen to music in the waiting room.You do not have to have a Zoom account. You will have opportunity to have your computer webcam on or off, that being said, having your webcam on will give us a sense of being together that we do not have when cameras are off.

Connecting by phone
If you do not have a computer, tablet, or smart phone you can still be a part of the gathering. You can “call in” to join the meeting and listen over your phone. Just call 312-626-6799. When asked for the meeting ID, enter 482 638 780# and when asked for personal ID, enter #.

Need help getting connected?
Join the meeting early so there is time to troubleshoot, if necessary.Helpers will be standing by to troubleshoot and help you join — call Herb Crown or Ethan Laster.

Special note about glitch during the music
If you are connecting to the gathering with an iPad you may be experiencing a glitch that makes it impossible for you to hear the songs being played. If you experience this glitch, look at the top left of your screen and touch the icon that says, “share screen.” Hopefully that will restore your audio connection.

Prepare your heart for worship
Last week we began celebrating Christmas together. We continue this week with a time to consider the significance of the coming of the Christ and our response in letting Jesus shape our lives.I will be preaching He Shall Be Called Jesus from Luke 2:15-21. What a Savior we have in Jesus our Lord!

Merry Christmas!

Get ready for a special time of worship together Sunday!

We will begin the gathering with a final look at Advent before segueing to a Christmas celebration.

From time to time we enjoy a special moment in our gatherings that gets our attention and reminds us what a blessing it is to share the grace of God with the brothers and sisters in our church family. I anticipate we will experience such a moment Sunday. While I do not plan to say a word about it, if you have your eyes and ears open, I think you will experience it when it happens.

There’s a time to wait. There’s a time to receive our King.

Merry Christmas!

Get ready to join with your Lafayette church family for worship on Sunday. Kyle’s sermon will be Gardens of Righteousness and Praise based on 1 Thessalonians 5:12-24 and Isaiah 61:10-11.

God has high standards for Christian communities, but meeting such standards depends less on our own moral performance and more on God’s faithfulness to and work within us. God is the Master Gardener, cultivating his people into gardens of righteousness and praise.

Have your Bible ready as we gather for worship!
