LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Lila Visits with Family After Tragic Drowning of Son Print E-mail
Over the weekend, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Lila (Beautiful Savior, Mequon, Wisconsin) received a request to visit a family whose son had tragically drowned during a pool party.

On Monday, September 15, LCC received the following from Lila and her handlers:

Lila Visit
At the request of the school administration, Beautiful Savior's Lila and her handlers recently visited the students at Sherman Park Lutheran Church & School in Milwaukee. A student had tragically drowned, and his family, fellow students, and the entire school were devastated.

After being briefed by a very compassionate Dean of Students, my team and I first met with the boy's cousins and closest friends. Understandably, they were quiet and reserved and somewhat reluctant to approach me. We encouraged them to come closer and get down on the floor with us. Before long, with God's grace, they began to stroke my fur and ask questions about me. The stress they were under seemed to lessen as the minutes went by. Pastor shared some encouraging thoughts, and soon gentle smiles appeared on their faces.

Lila Visit Throughout the afternoon, we met with small groups of students from the entire seventh and eighth grades. The progression of emotions pretty much repeated itself with each group. One lovely young lady told us that when she first came in, she was mad over the inexplicable tragedy. But after spending some time down on the floor with me and talking things out, "I'm not mad anymore," she told us with a smile. The power of God's peace and comfort!

Lila Visit As the afternoon progressed, the Dean brought in the group of cousins again, this time joined by the student's own sister, who had been at the scene of the drowning. Earlier, she had spent most of the day in a private office, too sick with grief to join the rest. Once again, we all joined together to receive God's spirit of community and feel His presence bringing comfort to their hurting hearts. As we prepared to leave, the Dean and the cousins shared hugs with all of us, and they walked us to the car for a final good-bye.

Tim Hetzner Begins Live In-Depth Bible Class on the Book of Acts - Started Monday, September 15 - It's Not Too Late to Register Print E-mail
Tim at WORD Join Tim Hetzner as he teaches live on Mondays - WORD - The New Testament, the Book of Acts study of the Bible.

The History of the first 30 Years of the Christian Church and our Return to What Worked!

Like so many things in life we need to return to the basics - our roots - in order to move forward. The Christian Church over the years has taken on many traditions and rituals. As important as they may be, they were not part of the early Christian church, a Church without walls, a Church that had explosive growth through Service of Mercy and Compassion to those who were in need - and a fever to tell others about Jesus! Come and explore over this 30 week course that history and explore how we can return to that Mission of the Church!

Tim will journey through the Book of Acts. Classes will look at the Bible in the context of history, culture and customs of the people at the time, as well as the archeological evidence.

WORD Bible Study Classes are non-denominational and are open to anyone regardless of church (or lack of) affiliation. This is a safe environment to study the Bible - no church membership solicitation will be allowed! This course will also be helpful to take for those wishing to travel with Tim on A Biblical Study tour in October of 2015 - Churches of Asia Minor - Highlighting the Biblical history and the growth of the early Church of Turkey.


This 30-session class started Monday, September 15th at Harris Bank in Palatine at 6AM, St Matthew Lutheran Church in Hawthorn Woods at 9:30AM and 7:00PM. To enroll, call 866-455-6466 or click here to register.
