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.
Advent Food Box
Like last year, you are invited to count down for Advent by supporting the Lakeview Food Pantry. It’s not difficult and can be used to replace using an Advent calendar to count down. Take any box. Each day during Advent (began Dec 1) put one food item in the box. Then on Christmas Eve, bring your box with 24 items to worship. All food will be put into the pantry as part of our Epiphany worship service on Jan 5. All non-perishable items or personal care items are appropriate for your Advent box.
Coming soon to Lakeview Lutheran Church – Red Cross blood drive. Please go to redcrossblood.org or call the church office to make your appointment for the December 12 blood drive. As a thank you, the Red Cross will email presenting donors a $5 Amazon e-certificate. Plus, the Northport Dr. Culver’s is providing a coupon for a pint of custard. If you can help that day or provide some treats please let Terry Warnke know.
Mark your calendars to be at worship on December 15 at 9:00 am. It will be the annual special music Sunday at Lakeview. A variety of Advent and Christmas music will be presented by the choir, Sunday school and other musicians at Lakeview. There will be a sermon and Holy Communion.
Christmas Eve Worship-4:00 and 6:00 pm.
Food Pantry Needs
We have seen a significant increase in the use of our church food pantry on Monday evenings. The top 6 needed items in the pantry include; dish soap, bottled juice, shampoo, salt/pepper combo packs, toilet paper and cold cereal. If anyone is inclined to contribute any of these items to the pantry, it would be appreciated. Drop your items off at Lakeview any time during office hours–Monday through Thursday, 8:30 to 4:00 or during worship on the weekend. You don’t have to be a Lakeview member to support the pantry!

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.
Remember that the church office is not open on Fridays.
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.
