K9 Logo Small Black SMWe’re Expecting!



That’s how our congregation is referred to in the LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Family since we are “expecting” our Comfort Dog next year. Pastor Ron and I were able to be a part of our extended “family” at the recent, first-ever LCC K-9 West Coast Region Conference at Napa Valley College on April 14. In addition to Teams Aaron and Reuben, Team Lois from Las Vegas, and Julia and her trainer from the Northbrook, IL headquarters were in attendance. We got an up-close look into the on-going training and practice that goes into maintaining a successful handler and dog team in addition to viewing educational videos, reviewing documents, and networking with handlers from our region.


Please pray for God’s blessing, guidance, and provision for this ministry in our gestational months.

Praise God, Good Shepherd!

Our application to become an affiliate of Lutheran Church Charities K9 Comfort Dog Ministry is approved and we have paid our deposit. This now places us in line for OUR dog, a 12-18 month wait. What a humbling honor and privilege we have before us to work alongside LCC to bring this “bridge of compassionate   ministry” to our community. Please pray as we now move forward to build our ministry team with the mission of sharing “the mercy, compassion, presence, and proclamation of Jesus Christ” alongside OUR dog! All glory to Him!
