2015 Black History Month Celebration
“I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal."
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Nyack College NYC Student Government Association (SGA), led by Secretary Landai Barnes, hosted a Black History Month celebration on Thursday, February 26th. The program included special tributes to Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Mahalia Jackson, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Numerous students contributed to a wonderful program that honored the lives and sacrifices of African American heroes. The program culminated with stunning performances from the Living Waters Dance Ministry and the Christian Folk Ensemble. As students went off to their 6 PM classes, they grabbed some traditional foods including delicious collard greens and sweet potato pie.
The Veterans Club - Meet & Greet
It was a great day of fellowship for our NYC College Veterans on Thursday, February 26th. Those who have served with the Army, Marines, Air Force, and Navy all gathered together to share stories and discuss current issues. We are so proud to have many former (and current) members of the armed forces here at Nyack! We look forward to the next meeting and thank those who have served our country so selflessly.
Ministry Outreach - Students Against Hunger
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink…”
- Matthew 25:35
Nyack College NYC students, school alumni, and ATS graduates came together on Thursday, February 26th to minister to the homeless and hungry. The Students Against Hunger prepared approximately 100 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, packed them into bags, and traveled uptown to Penn Station to hand deliver them. The students also delivered kind words and prayers of encouragement to those who are on the streets during this harsh New York winter. Several blankets were also distributed as temperatures have reached record lows in recent weeks.
We pray that God will continue to grow and prosper this ministry. We are so proud of our Nyack College NYC students!
Special Palau Chapel - Trip to Rockland!
On January 30th, 2015, student leaders from Nyack College NYC travelled to our Rockland campus for a very special chapel service. Andrew Palau, who has shared the Gospel with over 2 million people, shared an encouraging word on Mark 2:1-12. Mr. Palau also spoke of a major citywide event to come in March -- NY CityServe and NY CityFest. We are excited about partnering with local churches to serve our city on a tremendous level. For more information, visit http://nycityserve.org/ and stay posted! We'll be back with more info on how to get involved soon.
Spring 2015 - Opening Chapel
The house was completely packed last night as Nyack NYC opened the Spring Semester with our first Chapel service! Associate Dean of Student Life, Dr. Charles Hammond, started the evening off with worship. President Scales delivered a wonderful and encouraging word on "perfect love, which casts out all fear" (1 John 4:18). All were encouraged to never give up, even in the face of what may seem like many failures. We're really excited for a great semester ahead!
