Comfort Dog Ministry

LCC K-9 Comfort Dog Amos

Amos is a five year old pure bred Golden Retriever. He was the first Comfort Dog in Virginia and is hoping to serve people all over the DC Metropolitan area.

Amos has received over 2000 hours of training and is no ordinary dog. He is able to visit people in long-term care facilities, memory care facilities, hospice care, hospitals, schools, offices and in the community. Furthermore, Amos' team includes a retired police officer and a veteran, which provides ministry opportunities with first responders.

Team Amos Updates

November 2023

November 15, 2023 - Veterans Day

Team Amos attended the Veterans Day assembly at Mill Run Elementary School to honor our nation's heroes of past and present. Our hearts were moved to hear students sharing what "veteran" meant for them. It was a great time of honoring and remembering all the sacrifices they made for us, and we are so thankful for their service to our country.

November 8, 2023 - Sharing Christ at Local Schools

Team Amos is blessed to be serving again this year in the local schools in both Fairfax and Loudoun County Public Schools. We are grateful to have added a fifth school visit to our schedule, and now have weekly visits at Open Arms CCDC, Bull Run, Legacy, Mill Run, and Meadowland Elementary Schools.

Each day as Jesus's ambassadors we witness that our visits build lasting bonds with staff and students. Amos' presence in the classroom creates a comfortable setting that encourages interactions and sharing. His positive vibes rub off on students and help them improve their behavior. Amos is also a great source of calm and stress relief for the staff who appreciate the chance for a snuggle and a smile to boost their day.

With God’s help, students and educators see Christ in us, and we can show them who He is.

November 1, 2023 - Confirmation Sunday

This past Sunday was Reformation Sunday, and we are reminded to be more loving to others because God's grace and mercy were given to us in Jesus Christ.

It was also confirmation Sunday for students who have completed their confirmation instruction. We shared joy together with the confirmands for this important day in their lives.
