Last weekend the following LCC K-9 Ministry teams from the Southwest Region traveled to Messiah Lutheran Church in Plano, Texas, for a regional gathering:
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Abner & Martha (Bethany - Austin, Texas)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Damaris (Memorial - Katy, Texas)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Elijah (Our Redeemer - Wichita Falls, Texas)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Gabriel (Messiah - Houston, Texas)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Joy (Gloria Dei - Houston, Texas)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Miriam (Emmanuel - Kingfisher, Oklahoma)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Pax & Phoebe (St. Paul - Fort Worth, Texas)
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Triton (Messiah - Plano, Texas)
Teams from across Texas, Oklahoma and LCC staff gathered together for worship, fellowship, training, speakers, breakouts, and a service event.
The teams left inspired by the theme “Let your Light Shine.”
The LCC K-9 Ministry Regional Gatherings are important to the teams as they get to be together sharing the same mission "sharing the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who are suffering and in need." Seeing how the ministry has grown over the years and how God has connected us as one family is incredible. The regional gatherings remind us how we are not alone but are a family in Christ.
