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.
