Welcome to the Village Lutheran Church website
Welcome to the internet ministry pages of Village Lutheran Church and The Chapel School. Our mission is to "know, live and share the love of Christ" to congregation, children and community. As the Holy Spirit empowered the first disciples of Jesus to share the news of His resurrection, we too seek the power of the Spirit as we live out our mission. On behalf of our faculty and staff and all the baptized people of God and our partner ministries, we invite you to explore our site! Please see and hear our ministry in action, learn and grow through our educational and informative links and see if you may not find our ministry to be "a place for you" to "know, live and share the love of Christ!"
 We return to a fall schedule of three services per weekend:
Saturday  Worship Update 
Jacob and Dagny Stewart will be assisting Pastor Hartwell as worship leaders at the Saturday night 5:30 p.m. service. Jacob is planning to attend seminary and is looking for worship leadership experience and mentorship from our church; the common title for this type of service in the Christian tradition is “Parochial Deacon.” Dagny, Jacob’s wife of 8 years, will also assist on Saturdays by leading the singing. Join us on September 10th and meet the Stewarts as they are installed into service.
We’ll help you… "Catch a Lift."
The “Catch a Lift” Program is our Transportation Ministry. For many people, especially seniors, people without transport or persons with disabilities, getting to church is a challenge. Although church can be a true lift to a Christian’s spirit, lack of transportation means that this needed lift may be missed.

Participants simply stop by the Taxi Company at the Bronxville Train Station or call and arrange a lift to church. Tell the dispatcher or taxi driver that this is a Village Lutheran Church “Catch a Lift” ride and there is no cost. The cost of “Catch a Lift” is covered by the grant directed by a generous church family. Call (914) 337-8311 and tell the dispatcher that you would like a Village Lutheran Church “Catch a Lift” ride to 172 White Plains Rd. Bronxville, NY 10708
Prayer Conference Call will resume on the last Tuesday of the month, beginning September 27 at 6:00 p.m. To join in, simply dial (1) 732-434-3982. 
 Attention all incoming 7th and 8th grade families! Confirmation classes will be beginning at the end of September. Orientation (for students and parents/guardians) is on Thursday, September 22 from 6-7 pm. Classes will be held in-person this year and the Rite of Conformation is Sunday, May 21 at 10:45 AM.  Confirmation is a two-year program that equips our youth to understand the Christian faith and to live out the faith that we believe. One year we cover the Bible, and the next year, Christian Doctrine from the Catechism. Classes are held Thursday evening at 6pm at Church and is coordinated by Pastor Hartwell. If you are interested in registering your child for our program, please go to https://www.vlc-ny.org/confirmation-form or call the church office for more information at 914-337-0207 (1003) or KRapillo@VLC-NY.ORG
New 8th graders are welcome (we will catch you up) and VLC Members, TCS Students and community youth are all welcome.   
Volunteers are needed every month. Prepare food at home, using the aluminum trays provided, and drop off at church on the day of delivery.
