Bridges of Faith

At Lafayette we are blessed to have some people of great faith who are walking with Christ in spite of difficulties and hardships. This Wednesday night, we will meet one of those couples in a new format we’re calling Bridges of Faith.  Daryl and Janice McFarland will join us in the EPICenter for a time of fellowship and devotion and they will share their stories of how they came to know Christ and how they have overcome challenges and tragedy along the way.  I am sure you will leave being encouraged and will want to get to know them more on your own.

Daryl & Janice will join us in the EPICenter this Wednesday beginning at 6:30 PM

Daryl and Janice will join us this Wednesday, Nov 15 beginning at 6:30 PM. We will begin at 6:30 (if you can make it) with an informal time of fellowship that includes a pizza SNACK (eat your real meal before you arrive) provided by our Neotez Volleyball Champions, drinks, and hot chocolate.  At 7 PM we will have a devotional and spend time getting to know Daryl and Janice. I hope you can make it! You won’t be sorry!
