LCC Staff and Volunteers Help Clean Up After St. Matthew Hawthorn Woods’ 25th Annual Pig Roast Print E-mail
Pig Roast Sunday, August 9th, 28 LCC volunteers helped clean up following the St. Matthew Hawthorn Woods 25th Annual Pig Roast. Over the past 10 years, LCC has been conducting this servant event. For the volunteers and LCC staff, it is a fun time of fellowship over a complementary meal and a chance to meet and visit with one another before taking down the tables and tents. This year there was an exceptional group of volunteers who finished cleaning up early and were on their way home before 6 pm. Thank you to all the volunteers and staff who came out to help.

On Thursday, July 30th and Friday, July 31st, over 70 LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry dogs, as well as over 200 handlers, ministry workers, veterans, and LCC staff attended the 4th Annual LCC K-9/Kare-9 National Conference at Harper College. Everyone did “Come. Sit. Pray.”, as well as participated in a multitude of sessions, including:
  • The Anatomy of Tragedies, Travesties, and Traumatic Situations
  • Serving Those Who Served
  • Creating a Caring House of Worship
  • Come. Sit. Pray.
  • Back to Basics K-9 Training
  • Invisible Wounds of War
Dog Tired and many more! LCC President Tim Hetzner and LCC staff member Rich Martin introduced the attendees to the conference and discussed an overview of the past year, the growth of the K-9 Ministries, and the importance of keeping our eyes focused on what matters: Jesus Christ. A keynote presentation by Dr. Robin Ganzert, President and CEO of the American Humane Association, captivated the audience on Thursday afternoon.

Kare-9 The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Ministry partners and LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry veterans took part in breakout sessions and enjoyed meals with each other, all the while learning more about the ways they can spread the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those in need. With the development of the LCC Kare-9 Military Ministry over the past year, military and veteran outreach and support was a big segment of this year’s conference. Veterans Chaplain Craig G. Muehler CAPT, CHC, USN, Major General James Mukoyama, Joe Palmer, Richard Skinner, and LCC staff member Josh Homp engaged the audience in ways to support our veterans and told of personal stories that brought many of the conference attendees to tears. These stories, along with the keynote presentation, breakout sessions, fellowship, and over 70 Golden Retrievers in the same location all culminated in the best K-9 Conference to date!

LCC would like to thank everyone who attended the conference and the 66 volunteers who worked behind the scenes to make the conference another overwhelming success!
