Thanks to the strong support of community donors members of the Christ Lutheran Church of Cairo attended the Lutheran Church Charities K-9 Comfort Dog National Conference in Barrington, IL August 2nd-4th. Members that attended the conference were Nancy Harders, Don Hadenfeldt, Pastor Glen & Blenda Keylon and Nathan & Jaci Knuth
The function of an LCC K-9 Ministry dog is to act as a bridge to touch others with the Mercy, Compassion, and Presence of Christ. It is a nationwide program with over 20 dogs placed in 5 states (IL, IA, MO, IN, NE).
Christ Lutheran Church of Cairo is preparing to start this new ministry. Moses is the Golden Retriever that Christ Lutheran will receive in the next few weeks. The members of Christ Lutheran attending the conference were able to have professional handler training with Moses and get to know and learn about him and this ministry.
