Nurture Ministries


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.


Ministry of the Deacons

The deacons of LaFayette partner with the pastoral staff in ministering to the members of the church along with addressing special needs outside the body. They are divided into teams with specialized areas of focus.

The Benevolence Deacon Team seeks to glorify God by addressing benevolent needs in a fair and balanced fashion according to the resources which are available.

The Bereavement Deacon Team seeks to glorify God by offering ministry to church members who have lost loved ones.

The Outreach Deacon Team seeks to glorify God by helping connect prospective members to the church body in a meaningful fashion.

The Hospital Deacon Team seeks to glorify God by contacting those of our membership not in New Day Groups who enter the hospital  to share support, love, and comfort to the patient and family during the length of the hospital stay.

The Prayer Deacon Team seeks to glorify God through coordinating and promoting prayer opportunities for the body. Through these experiences the body is given opportunity to connect with God through special times of prayer. An ongoing opportunity to gather with others for prayer is provided on Sunday mornings prior to our Worship service that begins at 9:30am. This time of intercession is held in room A-121 beginning at 8:45am.

The Adult Deacon Team seeks to glorify God by providing coordination of ministry to adults of LaFayette. This ministry includes planning times of fellowship and ministering to the homebound and those members who are in care facilities.
