Lakeview Lutheran Church

A Warm and Caring Community


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.


Youth Kringle Sale

It’s time for the annual high school Danish Kringle sale.  Kringles are made fresh at Lehmann’s Bakery in Racine.  The sale ends Nov 30.  Kringles will be delivered on Dec 12.  Cost is $10 each.  Order directly from a high school youth or in the church narthex following worship services.  The youth will donate 10% of the money they raise from this sale to the general budget of Lakeview.  Remaining funds will assist with their trip to the National Youth Gathering in Detroit in July 2015.


Middle School Winter Retreat

Mark your calendars for the annual winter retreat for youth in grades 6-9 and friends at the Green Lake Conference Center.  It will be held Jan 16-19. Theme this year is “Survivor” and lots of fun is expected.  Watch for registration forms coming soon.


Senior Bus Trip to Chicago

A 30-passenger bus has been reserved for Dec 10.  It will pull out of the Lakeview parking lot at 7:00 am and arrive at Macy’s on State Street (former Marshall Field’s Store) at 10:00 am.  The group will spend an hour at Macy’s enjoying the unique exterior window decorations, the giant tree on the 7th floor with 23,000 lights, the historic Tiffany glass sky light and shopping.  At 11:00 am the bus will transport the group to Berghoff’s Historic German Restaurant for lunch.  At 1:30 pm the bus will transport us to Daley Plaza to the Christkindlmarket.  This is a famous German and European outdoor specialty Christmas Market with food and plenty of non-food venders.  There is a huge tree in Daley Plaza.  Although there will be plenty of shopping opportunities at this market, there are also a variety of spots to sit inside for a favorite beverage or pastry.  At 3:00 pm the bus will pick us up and return us to Lakeview.  The cost for the bus is $33 per person.     To reserve a spot on this fun trip to downtown Chicago, see Chris Anders soon.  Guests are always welcome but we can only take 30 people.  And yes, you can sit on Santa’s lap at the market!!!!


Sunday Adult Bible Study Class

Nate Campbell will lead a book study of the Tony Campolo book “Following Jesus Without Embarrassing God” during the Education Hour on November 2, 16, 23, 30 and December 7.  This book takes a humorous but also thought-provoking look at what it means to be a Christian in today’s world.  There are many excellent discussion topics!  Join the group for any or all of the sessions.  Treats will be provided.  All are welcome.
