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.
Benvenuto’s will donate 20% of all bar, dine in, carry out, gift certificates and delivery sales to anyone who mentions they’re participating in the Dine Out on Sunday, October 9, 2016 from 11AM to 10PM. Lakeview Lutheran Church is remodeling its kitchen to bring it up to code so it can better serve the community with our Free Thanksgiving Dinner, MUM Just Bakery program, Habitat for Humanity meals, Road Home program, monthly senior lunches and community events.
Young Family Retreat
The family retreat is scheduled for November 18-20 at Green Lake Conference Center. We had a successful and fun retreat last year, with 7 families in attendance. We are hoping for a similar turnout this year. We currently have 7 rooms reserved and Laura has heard from 6 families that are interested. Families that have already expressed interest and anyone else interested in attending, please get your $100 deposit to the church office by Sunday, October 9, at the latest, so Laura knows the final count and can release any unneeded rooms. If you put your money in the offering plate, please make sure it is clearly marked Young Family Retreat. The total cost will again be $288, with the total due before November 18. We will meet at Green Lake on Friday evening and have some activities before bed. Saturday will consist of an adult presentation (with childcare provided), free time for the family, and a family activity in the evening. Families will depart on Sunday, after breakfast. All meals are included in the cost. Green Lake offers lots of fun activities, including 1,400 acres with a beautiful lake. Families can hike, bike, play on the playground, climb the Judson tower, visit the chapel car, shop in the gift shop, or visit the rec center. It is a good opportunity to spend time with other young Lakeview families. Come join in the fun!
Pack the Truck Fundraiser
In conjunction with Easter Seals of Wisconsin, we will be having a Fall “Pack the Truck” fundraiser with the proceeds benefitting the Kitchen Renovation Fund. All donations are tax deductible. Informational pamphlet’s on Easter Seals and how this program works are available in the narthex, as well as by Laura’s office.

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.
