Village Lutheran Church of Bronxville Named 'Congregation of the Year' for 2011 PDF Print Email


July 6, 2011:  Bronxville Village Lutheran Church was named "Congregation of the Year" for 2011, an award given by a Lutheran fund to a Lutheran congregation in the greater New York metropolitan area that has been determined to display leadership and innovation in serving the community through its ministry.

The award, which was conveyed by Dr. David Hahn, head of school of Long Island Lutheran Middle and High School, is sponsored by the Lutheran Crusader Fund, an endowment established at that school "to glorify God by providing funding for special projects that benefit Christian institutions in spreading the Gospel and assisting people in need," as the fund's its website explains, and brings with it a generous grant of $10,000.

According to Rev. Dr. Robert Hartwell, senior pastor, "This award is a wonderful affirmation to the many church members, Concordia students and faculty and staff, Chapel School students and families, and community groups that are positively impacting our community through our ministry.  I humbly receive it on behalf of the many people our ministry serves," he added."

Christ Church Bids Farewell to Elisabeth Campbell, Parish Secretary, at June Picnic: See Photos of Those Attending PDF Print Email


June 29, 2011:  The undercroft and terrace of Christ Church Bronxville were the setting for the annual Christ Church spring picnic, which was held on Sunday, June 12, in spite of the threat of rain.

As well as being an opportunity for neighbors, fellow worshippers, and clergy to come together informally, the picnic gave Father Michael Bird, the Christ Church rector, an opportunity to present the departing parish secretary, Elisabeth Campbell, with tokens of appreciation from the congregation and church staff for her years of service to the church.

As the afternoon progressed, the weather continued to be fair, and except for the fact of Elisabeth's departure, a very good time was had by all.
