National Youth Gathering
The 2016 National Youth Gathering was July 15th-20th in New Orleans, LA. Everyone had a great time and are looking forward to the next gathering in 2019!
Held every 3 years since 1980, the LCMS Youth Gathering provides thousands of youth and adults the opportunity to come together as a community of God's people to learn more about Jesus Christ, the Christian faith, and their Lutheran identity. During the five days of the Gathering, youth spend time together in God's word, worship, service, and fellowship with others from across the synod.

Pastor John organizes a morning (7-9am) basketball game on most Saturdays year-round in the St. Lukes gym/fellowship hall. Depending upon numbers, full-court games are the goal each week. There is no charge to play on Saturday morning. You can come to have fun and get your sweat on. Also depending upon numbers and scheduling commitments of those playing, St. Lukes basketball group may occasionally join the Reno Rec leagues and compete with other small groups. Schedules vary, but Reno has league play almost year round. Cost is typically $50 per season, plus a one-time uniform cost of about $20. Contact Pastor John to get on the email list for updates on Saturday gym times and possible league play.
