Watch the Sem Games Live 
Appeal Banner
The Sem Games were created in 1960 as a day of basketball between Lutheran North and Lutheran South. For many years, the games were played in the field house at Concordia Seminary, which was the home court of the original Lutheran High School. Over the past decade, the Sem Games have been held at both schools and at various college campuses. This year's games will be held at Lutheran South, however, a limited number of spectators are permitted.

Join us virtually for the Sem Games on Saturday, February 6. Since we cannot have an extended group of fans at the games this year, you can cheer the Crusaders on by watching our live broadcasts.

Dr. Brackman Declines Call
After much prayer and deliberation, I strongly believe God's call is for me is to remain in St. Louis, serving Lutheran North. I have, therefore, declined a Call to serve as Executive Director of Dallas Lutheran School. I am fully invested in Lutheran North and believe wholeheartedly in our ministry. I will be staying in St. Louis and am very excited about our continued ministry! I know God has a wonderful plan in the works for us.
In Christ,
Principal Timothy Brackman, Ed.D.
