Helpers needed to reach mid-October completion goal

A number of volunteers from across Arkansas, including the RV-based NOMADS group (Nomads on a Mission Active in Divine Service), have had a hand in the construction of the new Hermitage Cabin at Mount Eagle Retreat Center. Work began May 16 on this one- or two-person cabin, which will be ideal for personal retreats.

A retreat center owned by the United Methodists of Arkansas and located near Clinton, Mount Eagle’s mission is to provide Christian hospitality and opportunities for holy listening.

Mount Eagle is happy to host volunteers wanting to help with various stages of construction, including exterior siding, plumbing, setting the shower, toilet and sinks, installing insulation, interior wall board and flooring, and finishing trim work. To arrange a time to donate your skills, contact Sarge Leonard, sarge.leonard@arumc.org, director@mounteagle.org or 501-723-4580. Leonard expects that the Hermitage Cabin will be ready to receive guests by mid-October.
