Welcome to Lafayette on-line! We look forward to seeing you in person!
We joyfully celebrate life and living in the fullness of God’s creation. In light of His unconditional grace and Jesus’ extension of friendship to all people, we welcome everyone who wants to become part of this community of faith.
We affirm all people equally, regardless of social, economic, or marital status, race, ability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, age, previous religious affiliation, or lack of religious affiliation. As God freely loves and accepts us, we offer love and acceptance in this congregation.
As a congregation, we are committed to living together in such a way that we give witness to Christ’s sacrificial life, saving death, and glorious resurrection. Through Christ, we live in amazement and joy!

Thanks be to God! On November 29th, the congregation accepted the report of the PNC and called to service The Rev. Stephen (Steve) Graves. We extend a warm welcome to Rev. Graves and his wife, Susie. We're very excited by all we've learned about him thus far and are enjoying his ministry at Lafayette! Side-by-side and with Rev. Graves' leadership, we are eager to continue sharing our collective faith story as children of God, in service to His people. Rev. Graves began his ministry at Lafayette at the beginning of the new year, leading worship for the first time on January 3rd at 11:00. See below for information regarding the Service of Installation, which we hope you will feel called to attend.
