Lutheran Church Charities Welcomes Two New Church Affiliates to LCC's Hearts of Mercy & Compassion Ministry
Pastor Scott Burmeister and lay leader Eric Wendelbo of Christ the Redeemer Lutheran Church in Tulsa, Oklahoma, along with Rev. Chris Singer, LCC President/CEO, and Tim Laabs, Hearts of Mercy & Compassion (HMC) Project Manager, are eager to see the Lord work through the Hearts of Mercy & Compassion Ministry to bring comfort and care to the people of Tulsa. Eric has deployed to Uvalde and Allen, Texas, with LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Persis (King of Kings - Glenpool, Oklahoma) and has a profound understanding of the importance of being there to serve people in their time of crisis and need.
Pastors Priem and Reimnitz, along with the board of elders of Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Raymore, Missouri, have given their blessing to the addition of Hearts of Mercy & Compassion Ministry to their church’s outreach efforts. Lay leader Roger Fox has gathered a group of Seasoned Saints who are eager to construct hearts and crosses, as well as bring these symbols of Jesus’ love to those in their community. Chris Singer and Tim Laabs look forward to working with this eager team as they share the mercy, compassion, presence and proclamation of Jesus with the community of Raymore and beyond.
Lutheran Church Charities now has 17 Hearts of Mercy & Compassion affiliates in 14 states. Click here to see the map. For more information about HMC, visit www.heartsmc.org.
