Designer Bags Auctioned For Mercy!

An amazing group of women from Milford Church of God, used their designer purses in a creative way to raise money for Mercy Ministries! These women from Austell, Georgia, auctioned off more than 60 fashionable handbags, including designer purses by Michael Kors, Gucci and Coach. Cost of admission to the event was one new or gently used purse, and all proceeds came directly to Mercy.

The evening started off with an ice cream social including cup cakes, root beer floats and every topping imaginable for the ladies to enjoy while they previewed the purses. Associate Pastor, Dani Cole, shared a challenging message straight from the Word of God entitled “What’s in Your Purse?”

Then the fun began and the auction paddles went flying as each of the designer bags sold, raising $2,028 for Mercy Ministries! Check out these photos from this fun-filled evening:

It is because of supporters like these amazing and creative women that hurting young girls can come to Mercy free of charge. To learn more about how you can help young women experience God’s unconditional love, forgiveness and life-transforming power, go to
