LCC K-9 Ministry Teams Bring Comfort to Louisville, Kentucky, Following Shooting at Old National Bank
Lutheran Church Charities was invited by Our Savior Lutheran Church & School in Louisville, Kentucky, home of LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Mercy, to serve the shocked and hurting community that has been greatly impacted by a tragic mass shooting that occurred on Monday, April 10, at the Old National Bank, killing five and injuring eight.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Caleb (Immanuel – Valparaiso, Indiana), Magdalene (Cornerstone – Carmel, Indiana), and Mercy (Our Savior – Louisville, Kentucky) and their handlers were present last week to listen to those who are grieving, bringing them comfort, love, friendship, hope, and prayer.
They visited Louisville Metropolitan Police Department District 4 to bring comfort and unconditional love to the officers who have been through a lot over the past week.
The LCC K-9 Ministry teams also returned to Old National Bank where they set up LCC Hearts of Mercy & Compassion. They were present with those who were visiting the memorial and writing messages on the hearts.
The LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs and Hearts of Mercy & Compassion were present at a community-wide prayer vigil taking place at the Muhammad Ali Center.
Please join LCC as we continue to pray for the Louisville community during this incredibly difficult time and for all of the first responders who heroically responded to a very difficult scene.
LCC's K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry and Hearts of Mercy & Compassion Ministry never charge those we serve as we bring the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those suffering and in need. We know that comfort is needed to help this shocked and devastated community and the first responders who serve them.
