Grace Covenant is the name of a newly founded church in Kansas City, Missouri, and it has taken on a life of its own since it was founded last year.
Since its inception, Grace Covenant has hosted more than 60 different people who are all either terminally ill or suffering from other medical conditions.
On Sunday, Grace will host its first service and a funeral for the congregation members who have decided to move out.
“We have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of support that we’ve received from the people of Kansas City and we are so thankful to everyone who has helped us to get here,” said Grace Covenant’s founding pastor, John Parson.
“We have come this far in our journey and we’re very proud of where we are in our life journey.”
A few months ago, Parson had his own terminal illness and had to move into a new apartment.
But after Grace Covenant came on board, Pascons health started to improve and he felt like he was finally able to live his life again.
“He said to me, ‘You’re so close to being home again,’ ” Parson recalled.
He’s now in remission from his illness, and he has even made a video with the grace of God to show his appreciation.””
Parson’s experience with his own illness has been nothing short of miraculous.
He’s now in remission from his illness, and he has even made a video with the grace of God to show his appreciation.”
And to know that God has been with me through this and has made me this amazing person and a good man. “
To see that I’m able to get up in the morning and be able to look at the sun in the sky and the sun on the earth and how beautiful it is.
And to know that God has been with me through this and has made me this amazing person and a good man.
And that’s really the most touching part of it.”
On Sunday, Pesca will continue his ministry at Grace Covenant, as well as hosting other events.
He said he hopes to have a permanent house for the Grace Covenant congregation at the end of the year.
“This church has been my home for so long and I know it will be there forever,” Pescat said.
