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.
The theme of our mid-week Lenten services this year comes from Exodus 3:13-15 where God declares God’s name to Moses as “I Am Who I Am.” We always celebrate that God is the one who loves, redeems, forgives and promises eternal life. Each of us is who we are also. And we are each created in the image of God and recipients of God’s promise. Each Wednesday evening in Lent we will gather at 6:30 pm in the sanctuary to hear guest presenters and learn “who they are.” The schedule includes:
Feb 28 Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Freedom From Religion Foundation
Mar 07 Juan, a high school student who has lived in this country his entire life and now is at risk for deportation
Mar 14 Mary Froiland, South Central Wisconsin Bishop
Mar 21 Ginger, a trans woman
All are welcome to attend our weekly presentations. We expect the presentations to conclude by 7:30 pm.

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.
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.
