The mission of LCC is to bring the mercy, compassion, presence, and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who are suffering and in need. The beautiful and gentle golden retrievers of the LCC K-9 Ministry are our bridge to connecting with all those God wants us to meet.
Last week the LCC K-9 Ministry was expanded with the addition of Brookfield Lutheran Church in Brookfield, Wisconsin and Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Houston, Texas. These two teams learned dog handling skills, the mission of LCC, and how to share the light of Christ with others.
Brookfield Lutheran Church was excited to meet and train with their LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Charity. Charity is triple-vested as a LCC K-9 Comfort Dog, LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog, and LCC K-9 Police Ministry Dog. For her work in the LCC K-9 Police Ministry, Charity will be working alongside Police Officer James Enters, one of Brookfield Lutheran Church's new handlers.
Charity’s Bible verse is Matthew 25:35: For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Joy trained with her new team at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church from Houston, Texas. The team first met Joy as a Comfort Dog in training when she was deployed to Texas after the Santa Fe High School shooting. The Gloria Dei team is excited to work with Joy doing outreach ministry. Joy will be dual-vested as an LCC K-9 Comfort Dog and LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dog.
Joy’s Bible verse is 1 Peter 1:8-9: Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Lutheran Church Charities is honored to welcome these two churches to the LCC K-9 Ministry. We ask that you keep the teams in your prayers as they go out to serve others in the name of Christ
