Another Creative Supporter Raises Money for Mercy!

One of Mercy Ministries’ amazing church partners came up with a truly unique and creative way to raise money. Grace Community Church in Clarksville, TN hosted the Grace and Mercy Gala for Valentine’s Day with dinner, dancing and delicious food! A silent auction included jewelry, spa packages, and other romantic gift baskets for couples to purchase. More than 180 people filled the Clarksville Country Club ballroom to celebrate this special Valentine’s Day and hear more about the wonderful work of Mercy Ministries.

Mercy graduate, Rachel Hardcastle, was there with her husband, Jeffrey, to share their amazing story of love lost and regained. Rachel came to Mercy a drug addict who had divorced her husband and lost her children, but through the unconditional love of Christ, she was set free from addiction, and her husband fell in love with her all over again.
