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.
News You Can Use
Our third “News You Can Use” event will be from 9:30 to 10:30 am on Thursday, April 25. You are invited to join the group in the upstairs Fellowship Room and share some pastries and hot beverages. The topic will be “Elder Abuse” and how to prevent it and what to do about it if it happens. The presenter will be Lee Ann Grimm, Dane County, Adult Protective Services Supervisor. Church members and guests are invited to come to this presentation to receive valuable information.
Tuesday, April 30, is the next blood drive at Lakeview Lutheran Church. Please go to redcrossblood.org to make an appointment or call the church office. The goal for this drive is to collect 44 units of blood. Please let Terry Warnke know if you can help that day or provide treats. Terry is looking for someone to manage the June 26 blood drive, as he will be out of town. The duties are not difficult. Thank you.
Bible vs Quran
The noon Bible study, led by Pastor Dean, has resumed in the Fellowship Room, It is a comparative study of the Bible and the Quran. We are looking at how the books are alike and how they differ. This study is open to anyone. It is a weekly event. Coffee is served. Sometimes other treats are available. Some folks bring a lunch. Participants should bring a Bible. If you own a Quran, it would be good to bring it but you don’t need to purchase one for this study. The group tries to end at 1:00 but that often depends on how much discussion and conversation is happening.
Remember that the church office is not open on Fridays.

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.
