icgrlogoformatted

Sept. 7, 2011:  Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe houses of worship are planning an event to remember the lost, the injured, and the heroes of 9/11.

The "Community 9/11 Commemoration" will be held on Sunday, September 11, at 3:00 pm at The Reformed Church of Bronxville.

Organized by the Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe Interfaith Council (BIC), the civic ceremony will feature stirring music (including bagpipes), a community choir, commemorative readings, greetings from Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe community leaders, a time of silent prayer, and the ringing of a commemoration bell.

According to BIC co-chair Rev. Dr. Robert Hartwell of Village Lutheran Church, "The civic event is designed to bring all residents of the Town of Eastchester together in a solemn moment of remembrance and prayer."

BIC co-chair Rabbi Morris W. Barzilai of Sinai Free Synagogue expressed his hope that the service would be widely attended by clergy and laity of the Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe community.  Barzilai added that "special recognition would be given to police, firefighters, and emergency personnel in our local community who continue to work on our behalf in challenging times."

Clergy from Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe (and congregations in surrounding areas that serve Bronxville, Eastchester, and Tuckahoe residents) have been invited to process in the service and to wear the vestments appropriate for their tradition.

Firefighters, police, and emergency personnel from Bronxville, Tuckahoe, and Eastchester are also invited to attend in uniform and process with the clergy.  Clergy and processing emergency personnel should arrive at 2:30 pm and gather in the Copenhaver Room of The Reformed Church of Bronxville.

For more information on the service and the community choir, contact the host of the ceremony, Rev. Keith Dragt, at The Reformed Church at 914-337-6776.

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

christchurchpicniccollins

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.
