At University Place

These pictures were taken at the University Place Retirement home, one of today’s service sites. The one picture is outside a resident’s door. He was a Colonel at West Point. Students did some dirty work (see pics) but also got to spend quality time with the residents. Reports from several students say it was an incredibly moving experience!







LiveStream of NYE

The LiveStream says it starts at 9:30, but the plenary actually begins at 9:45. It’s live NOW! You can watch and listen online at You may even catch a glimpse of our group out in the crowd. Very cool!

You can also watch last night’s worship service below. There is not video in the beginning, but if you stick with it, you’ll get to watch and listen to guest speakers. Very powerful! Enjoy!
