New Hope United Methodist Church in North Adams, MA, is renovating its new home (a former hardware store) so it can better open its doors to the community. 

For three weeks in July 2018, the church got some help from the NOMADS (Nomads On a Mission Active in Divine Service), mission volunteers who RV around the country to work on projects for United Methodist churches and organizations.
