ALL GOOD FRIDAY SERVICES
will be held at LaGrange Church
On April 18th, 1869 at 11:00am the first Episcopal Service in this community was held at the LaGrange Community Church.
On this 150th Anniversary of that significant event, we will read Morning Prayer from the 1769 Book of Common Prayer and the King James Bible at Historic LaGrange Community Church, 1575 Old Dixie Highway, 3 miles north of Titusville, just north of Dairy Road.
Saturday, April 13th - 5:30pm
Sunday Morning, April 14th
7:30 and 10:00
The congregation gathers outside the church and the palms are blessed, we wave them wildly as we sing... it is glorious! but just a few minutes later, we cry out in unison, "Crucify him!" It feels like spiritual whiplash, but that's Palm Sunday
Wednesday April 17th 7:00pm
a 130-year-old church, in candlelight. The story, passed down through the centuries, powerful words, exquisite music and an ending that's nearly unbearable. Brace yourself, for Tennebrae is an extraordinary experience.

There was a time when the entire nation of Israel was enslaved. Everyone. And they escaped. And what an escape! That story, passed down for thousands of years, is retold through food! A great story... and a great meal. Call Rick Purtle or the office for tickets.
Thursday, April 18th

What does it feel like to be truly served? What does it feel like to serve another person? This will take you there, in the most personal way imaginable. Step into it with fear and trembling. Come out with overwhelming with gratitude... and God's grace.
The Great Watch
April 18th Overnight
Thursday from 9:00pm thru Good Friday at noon
On the night before he died, Jesus begged his disciples, "Won't you sit with me and pray for just one hour?" The sanctuary remains open overnight. A time to sit in the silence, to pray, and to be with God alone.
It's been too long. God loves you. God misses you.
Can you give him an hour... just you alone?
April 19th at LaGrange Church
1869 Morning Prayer at 11:00
Veneration of the Cross - Noon
Stations of the Cross - 1:00
Seven Last Words - 2:00
The Veneration of the Cross is the most gut wrenching, soul stirring service of the year. No one can kneel before the cross, place their hands on the wood and not be moved. It is a Holy Week must. Seven Last Words are reflections by seven different pastors from historic local churches.
The Great Easter Vigil
