What to expect
What a typical Sunday looks like
We begin each of our services with a time of worship in song. Our first service begins at 8:00am and is more traditional with singing of hymns from the hymnal led by a song leader. Our second service, beginning at 10:45am, is a contemporary blend of hymns and worship songs led by a worship band with words projected on a screen. The emphasis is on congregational singing, not performing. We invite all to join in as we sing to and about our great God!
We believe that scripture and prayer are essential. Each service contains Bible reading, a scriptural Christ-centered message which is relevant to our lives today, and a pastoral prayer. We believe the focus of our entire time together is on God’s Word and His message to us.
Guests are welcome and will not be singled out. An offering will be taken that is for our regular attenders only. We do not expect guests to contribute unless they are inclined to do so. A welcome card is provided that enables us to pray for you during the week and to help us get to know you better. We conclude our services with prayer and an invitation to have an Elder pray with you if you so desire.
Our church is handicapped accessible. We have a wheelchair accessible entryway (ramp and automatic door) at the main entrance, and newly remodeled bathrooms. There is a space for those in wheelchairs in our sanctuary and in our hearts. We welcome our friends with wheelchair needs!

What should I wear
At Lafayette Alliance Church, we focus on the heart more than the outward appearance. When you come to one of our weekend services, you will find people dressed in a wide variety of styles from as casual as jeans or shorts, to as formal as suits and dresses. However, most people find themselves somewhere in the middle–most often wearing business casual.
We do ask that people wear clothing that does not draw attention to themselves. We think that what you wear to church should not detract from the worship experience of others around you. We want all of the attention to go to Jesus Christ.
