Lutheran Church Charities Welcomes Trinity Lutheran Church – Danville, Illinois and Messiah Lutheran Church – Houston, Texas to the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry
October 12-14, Trinity Lutheran Church and Messiah Lutheran Church joined LCC staff for handler training. The new handlers and caregivers spent many hours training in ministry, team building, and handler skills.
LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Bethany is now placed with Trinity Lutheran – Danville, Illinois and LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Gabriel has been placed with Messiah Lutheran – Houston, Texas.
These handlers have been called by our Lord to go out and serve others with mercy, compassion, presence, and proclamation of Jesus Christ whenever or wherever they are needed. Please pray for these teams as they prepare to go out and serve others as Christ first served us.
LCC welcomes the following handlers to the K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry:
Trinity Lutheran, Danville, Illinois – LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Bethany
Messiah Lutheran, Houston, Texas – LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Gabriel
