Lakeview Lutheran Church is a warm and caring community of God’s servants ministering through worship, learning and sharing. We are people of God in Christ and empowered by the Spirit to bear witness to God’s creative, redeeming and sanctifying activity in the world. For 150 years Lakeview Lutheran Church has been committed to a faithful proclamation of the gospel through word and sacrament and through a passionate network of social and outreach ministries in Madison and beyond.
Sun Prairie Disaster Fund
For the remainder of July, we will collect your financial gifts for the Sun Prairie Disaster Fund. You can write your checks to Lakeview and bring to worship, drop off at the office or mail to church. Your gift will be applied to your giving statement and in August we will send one check. This is the fund that has been established through the Bank of Sun Prairie and to be used by all the folks who have been impacted by the explosion. There are additional funds being collected for the family of Cory Barr and the injured fire fighter but we are supporting the general fund with our gifts. Certainly you can give to the other funds as well by going to the GoFundMe page set up for each one. Thank you for your concern and your support of these victims.

Interested in Membership?
It is not difficult to become a member at Lakeview. If you wish to join this congregation, you should call Pastor Dean in the church office to set up a meeting with him. The meeting is about one hour in length. He will review who we are as a congregation and what our ministry is about. He will talk about how our ministry is supported through the annual budget and about how each of us is called to support that budget with our dollars and our time and talents. Each family member joining will have an information sheet to complete (parents on behalf of children) and when that completed information is received by Laura, she will input it into the membership computer program and you will be an active member of Lakeview Lutheran Church. It all starts with a phone call.
Lakeview Food Pantry
The Lakeview Food Pantry is open every Monday evening from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm on the east end of the lower level of our building. It is a walk-in pantry – please bring an ID and proof of address.
