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.
Bible VS Quran
The noon Bible study, led by Pastor Dean, has resumed on Wednesday, September 19 in the Fellowship Room, will be a comparative study of the Bible and the Quran. We’ll look 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.
“What Does God Think?”
Pastor Dean will lead a book study and presentation regarding gender at 6:30 pm on Oct 22, Oct 29, Nov 5 and Nov 12. We will meet at church for an hour each evening. On the final evening we will be joined by a transgender man and a transgender woman. People who participate in this study are asked to read the book by Cheryl B. Evans entitled, “What Does God Think? Transgender People and the Bible.” If you would like to be a part of this important study, buy the book from Pastor Dean ($16.00). Then show up to the study. Pastor has 10 books available so we can have 10 participants.

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.
