Nurture Ministries

Keenagers

This group for senior adults meets on the first Thursday of each month at 10:00am in the Fellowship Hall for a time of fellowship, learning, and fun.

This time is followed by a rotation of lunch locations, including at the church or a local restaurant. In addition, the group takes an out of town trip twice each year to various spots in the country.

The group is open to all senior adults whether they are members of Lafayette or not.

Prayer Ministry

Intercessory Prayer Ministry – Persons involved in this ministry have a regularly scheduled time for prayer in the prayer room. Requests that have been given to the church office are made available to all participants. This vital ministry operates in the background, but has great impact on the effectiveness of the church’s work.

Weeks of Prayer – Each year opportunities are provided to offer specific prayer for missionaries and their needs. Prayer guides are given to the congregation to assist them as they pray.
