Eddie On Tuesday, July 1, LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Eddie (Peace Lutheran, Grand Island, Nebraska) made an appearance on ABC affiliate NTV's Good Life morning talk show. Eddie and his handlers, Don and Connie Moeller, talked about how they shared the mercy and compassion of Jesus Christ to Pilger and the surrounding areas after the storm that struck there two weeks ago.

The Pilger area was devastated by a twin vortex storm system on Monday, June 16. There is currently work still being done in the fields to help farmers remove debris before the crops grow too high.

Immediate Help Needed for Gardeners to Help with Manna Garden and Help Provide Vegetables for Those in Need Print E-mail
Manna Gardens The Manna Garden Initiative is a faith-based movement to engage, equip, educate and connect individuals, organizations and churches passion about addressing food needs in our community to transform people's lives.

Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Waukegan, Illinois, a site of one of the Manna Garden Initiative gardens, needs help in maintaining and managing a variety of vegetable beds in its community garden.

Within the next two weeks (now through July 5) volunteers are needed to thin, weed and do other general garden maintenance.

Lake County is the wealthiest county in Illinois and the 27th wealthiest in the United States. However, amongst all this wealth sits one of the largest poverty areas in the Chicago metro area.

10.2 percent (approximately 71,000) of families are low income. 19,600 children live below the poverty line. In 2011, the child poverty rate was 16.2 percent, which is an increase from 10.1 percent in 2009. In 2010, the child food insecurity rate was 19.1 percent.

The produce from these gardens goes to provide fresh produce for these poverty stricken families in Lake County.

The work starts at 10 a.m. Monday-Saturday. Volunteers are welcome to come for as long as they are able and to do as much work as they are able.

You will need to supply basic gardening tools such as a shovel, trowel, hoe, gloves, etc.

If you are interested in helping out please register to volunteer by following the "Register to Volunteer" link below.

You can't help everyone but you can help someone.

Nebraska Tornado Update - Farmers in Need of Volunteers to Walk Their Fields to Clean up Debris Print E-mail
Desk Around 3:45 p.m. on Monday, June 16th, a double vortex tornado ripped through the small town of Pilger, Nebraska. Thanks to your generous donations, on Thursday morning, June 19th, LCC President Tim Hetzner was able to deliver both cash donations and gift cards to Pastor Makelin of St. John's Lutheran Church in Pilger, Nebraska.

DonationsThe people affected by the tornadoes that devastated the Pilger area are in desperate need of help. Lutheran Church Charities is enlisting and registering volunteers to come to Nebraska over the next 2-4 weeks to help the farmers walk their fields (Mercy Walks) to clean up the debris left by the tornadoes.


Girl with DogBecause of the tornadoes and the scope of the damage through the fields of Nebraska, much debris has been scattered throughout the fields. It is critical that the debris is cleaned up before the corn grows too high for the debris to be seen. If the debris is left on the fields it poses problems for the farmers when harvesting as it will get into their machinery and damage their expensive equipment. Many of the farmers also had personal loss of cattle, homes, barns and equipment.

Communion Each volunteer team is responsible in providing their own lodging, transportation and meals. If you would like to put together a team or yourself to come out and volunteer, please fill out a volunteer form (see links below). Thank you for your consideration in helping our neighbors in Nebraska.
