We have reached the fund raising phase. We have estimated that we need to raise approximately $250,000 in order to buy or build our first Sanctuary. Meanwhile, we have found a place to meet in the interim - Mestizo Coffee at 631 W North Temple, Salt Lake City, UT 84116. Stay tuned for details, but with school soon to start we decided to wait until September to begin weekly meet & greets with meditation.
In the last year we have taken the concept of Sanctuary and really developed clear goals that will address a variety of needs for both the OPC and the local community at large. The following is the Sanctuary Mission:
* Provide oasis' for spirituality, healing, and learning
* Provide a beautiful, affordable venue for events (catering & other services provided by other parties) such as weddings & receptions which in turn will help fund the Sanctuary.
* Provide space to be used during none-venue reserved times for weekly OPC services, classes & groups.
* Provide space to be used during none-venue reserved times for weekly community services, classes & groups.
* Provide boarding for displaced individuals & families.
* Provides living quarters for pastor so they may provide full time services to the upkeep of grounds & services listed above.
