I love the fact that our highest calling is to be children of God. And what comes naturally to children is Biblical:
And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets.- Zechariah 8:5

Holy Hoops Season-Ending Tournament
Sunday Afternoon, April 23 at Augsburg College
St. Luke’s has been a part of Holy Hoops since 2018. It is a basketball league made up of church teams. Games are on Sunday afternoons. Each game begins and ends with prayer. A home team player prays before the game and a visitor team player prays after the game. It is for 9th-12th grade students who do not play for their high school.
Currently that little church in Minneapolis, Mount Olivet Lutheran has three teams, along with teams from St. Stephen’s Lutheran, Christ Presbyterian, and one team is made up of three churches: Galilee, St. Olaf Lutheran, and Christ River of Life.
This year St. Luke’s had 4 wins and 2 losses. The seasoning ending tournament will be at Augsburg College. It is single elimination. Save the date and look for an update of the time of the first game.
Men’s Lutheran Golf League

The league is over 30 years old. St. Luke’s has played in it since 2018. All levels of golfers are welcome. It is a handicapped league which allows every match to be competitive. If interested contact the Office.
St. Luke’s has been playing against the same church teams for years. Friendships have been built with guys we play with and against. It’s all about fellowship and community. Look for more information in the weeks ahead. Weather permitting, there will be some practices early April. If interested contact Adam Roberts at email@example.com
Play happens during Vacation Bible School, at Camp for 1st Grade through Grandparents, on the Mission Trip to the Pine Ridge Reservation, and Sailing for 11th-12th grade students in June and a trip for adults in September.
The devotion shared at the start of the Holy Hoops season says it all,
