First “22” Event a Success Print E-mail
22 The first monthly "22" LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Event was held in Hur Hall at LCC on Friday, January 22. Designed as an outreach and support for both active military and veterans and their families, "22" offers a safe, confidential and upbeat environment for sharing and fellowship. This month's event included a chili supper, music, speakers and a slide show featuring LCC's Kare 9 Military Dogs and veteran handlers.

Almost once an hour – every 65 minutes – a military veteran commits suicide, says a new investigation by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Many “22” support groups have organized to help raise awareness. LCC’s KARE9 Military Dog Ministry is among the groups who wish to take action and offer help.

After the Presentation of the Colors by the American Legion Post 166, Bill Bickley, American Legion Jr., Vice Commander 7th District, 1st Division, Department of Illinois, lead the nearly full house in the Pledge of Allegiance. Jeanine Weintz of LCC led the group in the singing of the National Anthem.

22 Rich Martin, Director of K-9 Ministries, and Jim Morrison, Army veteran and Kare 9 Military Ministry Associate, welcomed and introduced guests and brought greetings on behalf of LCC President, Tim Hetzner.

The program speaker for the evening was Major General James Mukoyama, Jr. of Military Outreach USA, whose offices are housed at LCC.

Sharing Our Mission

The mission of LCC is to share the Mercy, Compassion, Presence and Proclamation of Jesus Christ to those who are suffering and in need. As staff and volunteers prepared for and hosted the evening, they had a wonderful opportunity to speak with those veterans and military members present. One veteran shared that a family member's son had committed suicide the previous night.

22 As all had gathered to raise awareness for the growing rate of suicide amongst active and veteran military, it became apparent that God had given us a close and real opportunity to share our mission right then and there. In spite of his pain, he was there to uplift others.

There were many wonderful stories shared, new friends made, old friends reunited and the love of Jesus was very apparent and shared with those who are unchurched.

This event will take place again on Monday, February 22, 2016 at 6 p.m. We encourage you to invite any military or veteran and their families that you know.

Pontiac Church Donates to Armory Print E-mail
Armory In the Scriptures, Ecclesiastes 3:2 tells us there is "a time to be born and a time to die." On January 23rd, LCC staff members Jim Morrison and Dianna Bonfield, with LCC volunteers Glenn Dailey and Marc Morrison, saw God at work. It seemed to be the death of 85-year-old Trinity Lutheran Church in Pontiac, IL. However, when God closed one door, a window opened for the National Guard Armory in Chicago as Trinity donated its altar furnishings. As Trinity members Betty & Jim Barnett, Ruth Anne & Jim Fulton, and former member Dennis Guth helped load the box truck bound for the General Jones Armory in Chicago they could see how God was bringing "new birth", meaning and purpose to these furnishing that were once used to bring God's word and presence to members of Trinity. 22

The LCC envoy was met by Chaplain Wilhelm (Capt.) and Chaplain Assistant, Sergeant Britton, and a number of National Guard soldiers. Sergeant Britton gave a tour of the armory and shared the illustrious history and story behind its unique architecture and military emblems. After Chaplain Wilhelm's introduction of the command staff, the volunteers were presented with a challenge coin of the 2.122 Field Artillery.

Chaplain Wilhelm and Sergeant Britton were able to use the altar furnishings when they conducted Sunday Chapel service for the Guardsmen on duty.

A special thank you to all the members of Trinity Lutheran Church in Pontiac, IL for their care and support of our military men and women and their families.

LERT Volunteers and LCC K-9 Comfort Dogs Unite in Texas Print E-mail
Tornado Disaster response and LCC K-9 Comfort Dog ministries joined together on January 23, 2016 to bring aid and comfort following the December tornadoes in Garland, TX.

Comfort Dogs Phoebe and Pax from St. Paul Lutheran in Ft. Worth, TX joined together with more than 300 LERT volunteers from the state of Texas to assist the residents of Garland.

In spite of the brisk and chilly day, the atmosphere was warm and invigorating as crews eagerly worked to clean up the storm-damaged community. Chainsaw crews were among the volunteers along with the Holy Cow Smokers from Lamb of God Lutheran Church in Flower Mound, TX. Holy Cow Smokers prepared 800 pounds of pulled pork for 1,200 lunches as well as 500 sliced brisket dinners. The meals were served at Tree of Life Lutheran in Garland.

Assistance Needed for Roof Repairs Print E-mail
Pastor Shehab LCC received the following email from Pastor Hesham Shehab (Salam Christian Fellowship - Lombard, IL) regarding a family in desperate need of support:
Dear Friends,

We have a very hard working Iranian woman, 74, who takes care of her disabled Husband, 85, disabled son, 56, and disabled brother, 79. The family lives in a condo in Lombard, Illinois. Recently, the association there charged her $1400 for roof repairs, (due end of this month). If she does not pay the bill, she would be fined and sued, and pay the court expenses ($970).

Please show the love of Christ by donating generously to this Iranian family that was persecuted in Iran, and found Peace in Jesus at Salam.

In God's Peace
Hesham Shehab
