As we enter the New Year, LCC continues to bring the mercy, compassion, presence, and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who are suffering and in need.
The LCC K-9 Ministry especially asks you to lift up in prayer the teams that are now responding to the deaths of children and adults, and for the families and friends that are grieving the loss of loved ones.
St. Andrews Lutheran Church - Stockton, California: St. Andrews is in the process of getting an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog. With LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Aaron (St. John's - Napa, California) and Reuben (First Lutheran - Yuba City, California), they responded to the death of a 1st grader by visiting his school and classmates on Tuesday, January 2, as counselors and teachers share the news of his loss.
St. Stephen's Lutheran Church - Liberty, Missouri: Following the death of a mother, 2 daughters, and a friend in a truck accident, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog teams from the Missouri Valley region will be attending the visitation and funeral on Wednesday, January 3.
Prince of Peace Lutheran Church - Crystal Lake, Illinois: LCC K-9 Comfort Dog teams attended the visitation on Tuesday, January 2, for a 27 year-old who lost his battle with cancer.
Living Christ Lutheran Church - Arlington Heights, Illinois: Working through Living Christ and LCC K-9 Comfort Dog JoJo, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog teams attended a visitation on Tuesday, January 2, that a neighbor made on behalf of the family. This family is in need of comfort and hope in Christ as they are not currently affiliated with a church.
Thank you for your prayers as we begin this year serving others with the love of Jesus.
