Covenant Village in Turlock celebrated 125 years of Covenant Retirement Community operations with a day of historical presentations, guest speakers, and 19th century costumes. Covenant Retirement Community was founded by the Covenant Church with the purchase of Home of Mercy in Chicago in 1886. It has since expanded across the United States. Covenant Village in Turlock was founded in 1977.
