The Sanctuary Project

Your safe and peaceful haven; a comforting place of refuge and rest in a noisy, chaotic world. 

 
PCC NMC AD 2019-21.jpg
 

In 2018, God gave us the vision to transform our clinic into a Sanctuary for our patients. We hoped and prayed that it would be a place where the Holy Spirit speaks life and love into the hearts and minds of our patients; a place that transforms.

We spent months fervently praying and planning; asking God what the message of each room should be and how to best convey that message. Once we had a plan in place, we put together a webpage with every single item needed and created the video below, casting the vision and inviting our supporters to get involved by personally sponsoring the items or helping us to paint and put things together!

 

Watch The Original Video Here:

 

Once everything was completed, we hosted an celebration open house! Supporters and sponsors came in to see the items they’d sponsored, celebrate and to pray over each room. We also had a time of worship together, so that we could sing God’s love and faithful promises throughout the building. It was a truly powerful evening and such a blessing to connect with all of our amazing supporters!

September of 2019 marked the one-year anniversary of PCC's Sanctuary Project completion!!! Our hearts have been swelling up and overflowing with praise for what God is doing. And we can't come close to adequately describing how thankful we are to every single person who invested so much of their time, talent and treasures. Every prayer prayed, item sponsored, piece that was hand-crafted, fixture installed, paintbrush lifted, donation given, and hour invested in this - we could not have done this alone. We put together a before and after video, so that you can see the incredible transformation for yourself!

 
 

We can't even begin to describe it. The remarks, the expressions of surprise and peaceful relief, and the freely offered opinions by patients explaining how everything makes them feel so loved. The Sanctuary Project has already been used by God FAR ABOVE our expectations!

What started off as simply painting a wall or two, quickly turned into something far deeper than just cosmetics. One patient said that she knew there was something different about this place as soon as she walked through our door. She felt loved and safe. An hour later, she accepted Jesus as her Savior! We know that this is the work of the Holy Spirit and that He is using all of this to establish trust and communicate His message to our patients. And God is already using the Sanctuary Project to open new doors and lead us forward - this is just the beginning!

We could tell you story after story! Every patient gets the chance to fill out a survey on their experience with us, and there is an optional section where they can leave a written comment as well. We have received SO MANY incredible comments about the building, but here are a few of our favorites:

“Loving the renovations being made here. I suffer from anxiety and coming in today with the new colors and warming feel I feel calm. Thank you!” - Female Patient

“Everyone was very pleasant and professional. The décor was warm and relaxing.” - Male Patient

“I love how it looks here. Very comfy and homey. Felt really relaxed and comfortable. Love the new update and everyone who works here. Very friendly staff.” - Female Patient

“The environment was very comfortable.” - Male Patient

“Everyone was very kind and the center felt home-like and welcoming.” - Female Patient

“Very warm and extremely friendly building and employees.” - Male Patient

“Makes you feel at home!” - Female Patient

Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for making a bigger impact than you'll probably every know this side of Heaven. We are so blessed by you!


Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. - Ephesians 3:20-21

 
 
 

The first impression Area

This covers the main entrance and reception desk. This area is so valuable, because it is the first thing our patients see and sets the tone of their visit.

We want this area to send the message that we believe they are special and valued.

PATIENT BATHROOM

The Patient Bathroom is surprisingly important - this is a space for our patients to be completely alone, allowing them to take time to breath and process privately. Here, we want to blow them away with how they were so thought of before they even came in. This room gives us a perfect opportunity to pamper them and help them forget their struggles for a short time.
