We are called to bring Jesus - his refuge and strength - a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1)

high school On Wednesday, January 28 at 7 a.m., LCC received a phone call from the principal at Eureka High School in Eureka, Illinois asking if we could bring the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs to the school today because of the death of one of their students in an auto accident last night. Already more than 40 students had gathered in the library to mourn his passing.

teamBy 10:30 a.m. a team of 6 LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and 8 handlers deployed to Eureka. Central Illinois District president Rev. Mark Miller invited us to work with and through Pastor Joseph Burns and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Eureka. Since Pastor Burns is ill, Pastor Tom Heren from Our Savior Lutheran Church in Washington, IL will join the LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and handlers at the high school. Because of their assistance we will be able to bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to the students, faculty, staff and community of Eureka.

Please keep those who have been affected by this heartbreaking tragedy in your prayers, as well as those who are traveling.

LCC never charges those we serve, we rely on those led to help cover the transportation costs. Thank you for your faithful support!
