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 no 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!

Request for Prayers and Assistance ...
Numerous states were affected by flooding this year due to the melting from heavy snow fall and a higher than average amount of rainfall. More than 150 locations in the central and southern Plains reported river flooding, the majority of which were in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, eastern Kansas and western Missouri. The relentless rain and storms impacted a wide swath of Texas, beginning on Memorial Day weekend. The severe weather left an estimated 4,000 homes damaged, washed away, or otherwise destroyed.
Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) has been in continual contact with mid-councils that experienced storms and flooding, and has responded to the most affected ones, Grace, Mission and New Covenant, with One Great Hour of Sharing funds and the presence of National Response Team (NRT) members, and has also reached out to Palo Duro to offer assistance.
Two congregations and a New Church Development, Saint Paul Presbyterian Church, Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church and Iglesia Cristiana Latina Presbiteriana in New Covenant Presbytery, sustained damage from the flooding. PDA continues to work with Presbyterian leadership to help these churches with their needs.
John Knox Ranch camp, a Presbyterian camp situated on the Blanco River, was also affected by the flooding in Texas. While most of the buildings at John Knox stand on a ridge and were unaffected by the flood waters, the camp sustained extensive damage to the dining hall, swimming pool, and two shower houses that were located below the ridge.
Please "stand in the GAP" for all who are affected by the flooding:
Give. Share your financial blessing and designate your gift to DR000191 - U.S. Flooding. Gifts can be made online, by phoning 800-872-3283 weekdays between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. EDT, or by mailing a check to Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), PO Box 643700, Pittsburgh, PA 15264-3700.
Pray for all who have been affected by storms and flooding, for those who remain in harm'’s way and for those involved in responding to needs.
2 Corinthians 13:14
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.
"With believers in every time and place, we rejoice that nothing in life or in death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord."
