Lutheran March Madness

The 63rd annual National Lutheran Basketball Tournament of Champions is being held at Valparaiso University March 26-29. Seventy-two teams from throughout the United States, each representing a locally-based league, are competing for national titles in three age divisions for boys and girls.

The tournament, which is sponsored by the Lutheran Basketball Association of America and governed by a national seven-member Board of Directors, was first held in Cleveland in 1947. It has been held at Valpo since 1971.

If you’re here for the tournament, please join us for worship Sunday morning at 8:30 or 10:30 a.m. in the Chapel of the Resurrection. Rev. James Wetzstein, one of our associate university pastors, will preach. We also welcome you to our Candlelight Evening Prayer service Sunday at 10 p.m.
