The Church at Planned Parenthood is expanding to The Volunteer State.
Ken Peters, a Washington state pastor, started the Church at Planned Parenthood more than two years ago to hold worship services on the grounds of a Spokane abortion clinic. He is now in Knoxville, Tennessee, where a second church is conducting worship services at another abortion clinic.
Peters tells One News Now that the Knoxville congregation, Patriot Church, has held three services to date and, at the most recent service, 150 pro-life believers worshipped together despite freezing temperatures.
The website for The Church at Planned Parenthood states the worship services are not a protest. “It’s a worship service,” the organizers state, “at the gates of Hell.”
Peters likens the church gathering to the New Testament story of the “Good Samaritan” who crossed the road to help a wounded victim. America, he says, is the victim.
“We want to be the ones that are the hands and feet of Christ for [America's] been good to the Church,” he says. “Now it's time for the Church to be good to America.”
