Students from several Henderson County churches along with groups from eastern North Carolina and Florida are working together this week at "Hendo Mountain Mission."
The camp has been designed to help students connect with the residents of Henderson County in a meaningful and powerful way. Students will be hanging drywall, painting, building handicap ramps, digging drainage ditches, roofing and more.Projects were developed by Housing Assistance of Henderson County.
The theme for the week is Re-store and our emphasis is bringing physical and spiritual restoration. Churches involved include First United Methodist Church, Etowah United Methodist Church, First Presbyterian Church, First Wesleyan Church, Asbury Memorial United Methodist Church, First Nazarene Church, Inverness Presbyterian Church, Oxford Presbyterian Church and High Peak Baptist Church.
The week was made possible by the cooperative efforts of local churches and the long-term ministry of Service Works, a Christian non-profit. All the groups are staying at a local campground owned by the Nazarene Church where they participate in games, meals, worship and fellowship every evening.
