This past weekend LCC Executive Director Joshua Gale and K-9 Deployment Director Rich Martin with LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ruthie traveled to Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Bellevue, Washington for Sunday services and the Northwest Reformation gathering at Overland Christian Church in Redmond, Washington. They were joined by John Goad and Denny Tripcony with LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Cubby (Redeemer Lutheran – Ft. Collins, Colorado). While there, they met with a group from Pilgrim who is in the process of joining the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry. At the Reformation Celebration in Redmond, over 2,300 people gathered to hear the festival chorus of 200 voices and a message on the meaning of the reformation from Rev. Dr. William Weinrich, Professor of Historical Theology and Coordinator of Military Chaplaincy at Concordia Theological Seminary in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
