May or June- Peace by Piece Party
awareness & outreach
One of the biggest challenges of a new ministry is just letting people know that we are here! The Peace by Piece party is a 1-hour informal get-together! If you gather a small group of friends together, we will share pictures, stories and
facts about LHM in a fun and informative way. There is no pressure and we don't even accept financial contributions at these parties to eleviate any form of peer pressure. We just want people to hear about what we're doing.
You can host this in your own home or you can use LHM transitional home. We provide the invitations if you'll just invite the guests!
