Hearts of Mercy & Compassion (HMC) provides a physical and spiritual symbol through the giving of hearts and crosses to families and friends who have suffered a loss or are experiencing the illness of a loved one. An HMC can also be given to celebrate a victory, honor service, as an expression of love, or to be an encouragement in the face of adversity. Given as a gift, each HMC provides the love and hope of Jesus through presence and prayer.
As we journey together, we can share in each other’s sorrows and celebrations. The heart itself is universal and conveys love. The color blue is the color of hope and the fish a symbol of God’s saving grace. Upon request, Lutheran Church Charities, working through churches, can provide an HMC at no charge.
Specialized Hearts of Mercy & Compassion can be provided for:
Hearts for Military Service: This heart is purple, which is a combination of the six military branch colors. It includes a decal from the appropriate military branch (Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, and Space Force).
Hearts for First Responders: The blue heart will have the appropriate Thin Line decal (Law Enforcement-blue, Firefighters-red, Public Safety Service-yellow).
LCC never charges those we serve. We are able to do that with the support of donors.
