Hinton Center hosts NOMADS


From the May Newsletter at Hinton Rural Life Center in Hayesville, NC:

Hinton Center was happy to host the UMC NOMADS for three weeks during April and May. The NOMADS did far too many projects at Hinton to list them all individually, but their work included painting and repairs in Sells Cottage, Patterson Cottage and Bideaux Hermitage, and work on a new office in the Administration Building.

Much of their time was spent working on our new Lakeside Worship Center, where they built a deck, stairs and railings to allow access to the back of the pavilion from the dock and fire pit area. They also poured and formed concrete pads and a sidewalk leading to other entrances of the pavilion, as well as concrete retaining walls.

NOMADS stands for Nomads On a Mission Active in Divine Service. They provide volunteer labor for United Methodist organizations and demonstrate God’s love through our work and by listening to the people with whom we work. They do new construction, remodeling, and repairs for churches, children’s homes, camps, colleges, outreach missions and disaster rebuilding. Team members do maintenance, cleaning, painting, electrical, drywall, sewing, flooring.
