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.
Sunday School Registration Form
Rallying in Poynette
On Sunday, September 9 we will worship at 10:00 am on the McKenzie Environmental Center near Poynette. We have reserved the shelter there, just like we did last year. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and food to share. After the worship service there will be a picnic. The church council and staff will provide hot dogs, brats, buns, condiments, and lemonade. They will also provide table service. Bring on the great side dishes and desserts. You are also welcome to bring other beverages if you wish. During the worship service, we will install Sunday school staff and hear from the youth who attended the national youth gathering this summer in Houston. We’ll do some singing and some praying and, of course, there will be a provocative and inspirational sermon. Holy Communion will be served. We’ll simply celebrate God’s love in a beautiful creation and with wonderful people. So invite guests too.
After the meal you are invited to hike the many miles of trails, climb the lookout tower, visit the various Wisconsin animals, check out the museum, go for a bike ride or just sit around and converse. There is no rush to leave as the space is reserved all day. The center provides many outdoor activities and can especially be enjoyed by kids. We had a great time last year and we hope it will be a good day for all of us again this year. Mark your calendars. Carpooling is a great idea although there is plenty good parking. No steps are involved. Restrooms are clean and have running water. It’s about a 20 minute drive north of Madison.
We are collecting school supplies for students in need. You can start bringing school supplies to church. There is a bin in the narthex for the school supplies. A list with suggested items is available at the Information Station in the narthex. School supplies will be collected through Labor Day.

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.
