Sundays at LFC

 Visiting a church for the first time can be a little daunting. Where do I go? Where do my kids go? Is it safe? What will the music be like? What is the teaching like? What will people be wearing? These are all valid questions to ask when looking for a new church. Here is a brief run-down of what to expect at Lafayette Federated Church.
Please note: Our summer schedule begins Sunday, July 2 and goes through September 3. During that time, we will be meeting for a combined worship service at 9:30am followed by a coffee fellowship time. There will be no Sunday School during this time.                            There WILL be a full nursery and Junior Church program offered.
 
 

Parking

First of all, parking is plentiful, so you should have no problem finding a spot. When you arrive at the church building, we encourage you to drive to the top parking lot that is behind the church. We have designated visitor and handicap parking spots, and the door leads right into the lobby, sanctuary, and adult classroom level. Our facilities are wheelchair accessible.

 

 Nursery

We provide safe, loving nursery care for infants through three year-olds during both worship services and Sunday School. The nursery is located on the upper level, near the sanctuary and adult classrooms, in room 205. When you arrive, our friendly, child safety- trained nursery volunteers will check your child in, give you a matching identification sticker, and take your cell phone number in case you need to be contacted. All nursery rooms can be viewed anytime on a monitor located in the hallway right outside the nursery entry.

 

 LFC Kids

The children’s classrooms for Sunday School are on the lower level of the church. Sunday School begins at 9:45.  Kids through 3rd grade start out in room 107 for an opening, and then after that teachers will take the kids to their individual classrooms, where you can pick them up at 10:45. Grades 4-6 begin in their classrooms. All grades and classrooms are listed under the directory sign near the lower level entryway by the gym.

 

Youth

Youth (grades 7-12) Sunday School classes begin at 9:45am. 7th grade meets in room 103, 8th grade meets in room 110, 9th and 10th grade meets in room 121,   and 11th-12th grade meets in room 118. All the classrooms are listed under the directory sign near the lower level entryway by the gym.

 

Our Worship Services
 
When you enter the sanctuary for a worship service, you will be greeted by greeters and ushers who can answer many basic questions you may have. Both services on Sunday, 8:15 and 11:00, are identical, and in both services we dismiss children ages 3-6 to their own Junior Church service which meets in room 100. Our worship style is a blend of traditional hymns and modern worship songs, and the services last around 1 hour and 15 minutes. Our goal in worship is to exalt the Lord’s name together, focusing on Him rather than our preferences and personal tastes. The sermons are from the Bible, with the goal of applying God’s unchanging Word to our everyday lives. Finally, please feel free to wear whatever you are comfortable with. There will be people worshiping together in everything from suits and ties to very casual dress. We care about you, not what you wear!
