Welcome to Christ Church
From Deacon Novella Lawrence
On Sunday, July 13, 2014, I was privileged to serve my first Holy Eucharist here at Christ Church. It was a glorious service as experienced by me and as expressed by my guests who attended. Your welcome was overwhelming and appreciated. It is a pleasure to serve with Fr. Chuck, Deacon Geri and all of the Lay Leaders in the service. I am looking forward to serving and getting to know each and every one of my new brothers and sisters in Christ in the parish.

While contemplating what I should write to you in this communication, my Ordination Vows from the Book of Common Prayer came to mind:

I commit myself to your trust and responsibility. I hope that God and each of you will help me to be modest, humble, strong and constant, to observe the discipline of Jesus Christ, to look for Him in all others, being ready to help and serve those in whatever need they may have. That I may be faithful in prayer, and in the reading of study and Holy Scriptures in able to pattern my life accordingly so that I might proclaim God's Word and assist in the ministration of His Holy Sacraments.

Feel free to contact me with any thoughts about Pastoral Care, Bereavement Care, Spiritual Care or just to say hello!

My phone number is 347-581-1082 my e-mail address is or

In His Love,

Deacon Novella
