To follow last year’s full-house event, Mercy Multiplied will once again host an Evening of Mercy at Louisiana’s West Monroe Convention Center on November 12. The event will serve to grow awareness and generate much needed resources for the work and mission of Mercy.
Attendees will enjoy a complimentary Louisiana-inspired dinner and program, including special music from Grammy Award winning Christian artist Laura Story and inspiring presentations from Mercy graduates and Mercy Founder and President Nancy Alcorn.
It was in 1983 that Alcorn started the first Mercy home in Monroe, Louisiana with just $1000 in her pocket. “I thought it would be one home that I would run the rest of my life, but I had no idea what God had in store,” said Alcorn. Three decades later Mercy has seen extensive growth, including the addition of homes in Nashville, St. Louis, Sacramento, United Kingdom, Canada, and New Zealand. A recent rebrand from Mercy Ministries to Mercy Multiplied reflects that enduring forward movement, as Mercy makes plans to build a new home in Florida and launches new outreach initiatives to equip and empower all people with keys to lasting freedom.
“We want to share with the greater Monroe area all of the exciting things happening at Mercy,” said Dana Owens, Mercy’s Monroe Community Relations Manager. “There are now more ways than ever for each person to “be the ME in MERCY” and help those that are hurting find freedom.”
Guests will have the opportunity at the event to make a donation toward the free-of-charge care Mercy offers young women struggling with life-controlling issues. In addition, Evening of Mercy sponsorship packages are available for interested individuals and businesses.
