National volleyball tournament includes Christian service          Send a link to a friend

[NOV. 10, 2005]  One of the highlights of the National Christian College Athletic Association volleyball tournament being hosted by Lincoln Christian College is the Christian service project, which is carried out by members of the top 10 teams in the nation. This year's project was at the Lincoln Christian Nursing Home.

Team members visited with the residents and performed four hours of service in such areas as filling water pitchers with ice, assisting in the laundry room, making beds, playing the piano during the breakfast hour, demonstrating and explaining the fundamentals of volleyball, and generally relating and witnessing to the residents.

Ryan Edgecomb, chaplain of the Christian Nursing Home, was a coordinator for the group and stated that he was very happy for the joy the players brought into the lives of the senior citizens.

NCCAA volleyball tournament play started at 10 a.m. Thursday at the Laughlin Center on the LCC campus and will conclude with the championship match at 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
