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."
