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.


Hurricane Harvey and Irma Relief

All gifts will be sent to Lutheran Disaster Response.   You can still make a donation by writing a check to Lakeview and designating it for Hurricane or through the church web site by clicking on  the Vanco Give + link below.  Thank you for much needed relief support.

Service of Renewal

Sometimes life simply wears us out.  We struggle with illness, death, loss of job, living in a new community, arguments with those we love, being victimized because of who we are.  If you are looking for an opportunity for renewal because of any of these issues and more, you are invited to Lakeview’s new monthly service of renewal.  It will be held on the third Wednesday evening of each month at 7:00 pm in the historic chapel (for those who enjoy the chapel, a chance to use it).  Pastor Dean and Lynn Najem will be leading the service of readings and reflection, music, prayers and communion.  A time for fellowship with refreshments will follow each service.  We look forward to seeing you on Sept 20.

Senior Bus Trip

Lakeview is planning a bus trip to Hoards Historical Museum in Fort Atkinson on 10/31. In the Lincoln Era Exhibit, we will learn about the 1832 Black Hawk War. We will also learn about William Dempster Hoard known as the ‘father of American dairying’. He was also a governor of our state. We will lunch at the River Front Family Restaurant in Fort. We will spend the afternoon touring the Yerkes Observatory in Williams Bay. Yerkes was established in 1897 by the University of Chicago. It houses a 40” refractor telescope. This trip is geared toward, but not just for seniors. Total cost $37/person; includes bus ride & admission to both locations. Lunch is on your own; limit 30 people. Please see sign-up in Narthex or contact Chris Anders, coordinator@lakeviewlutheranmail.org Bus leaves from Lakeview at 8:30am, return time approximately 5pm

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 5:00 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.

Inclement Weather

If weather will impact worship or other activities scheduled at Lakeview, we will notify the community by putting an announcement on the church voice mail, by putting a note on the Lakeview Facebook page and by posting on www.nbc15.org.  If possible we will also send a note to your email address through our Realm record keeping system.
