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.

Pastor Dean’s Retirement
Friends, After slightly more than 19 years of ministry at Lakeview, I have made the decision to retire as of December 31, 2020. I will participate in a final worship service on January 3. It has been a difficult decision since serving here has been a wonderful opportunity for me and my family. The dedication to ministry, through the enormous love shown by the people of Lakeview, has been the foundation for my own passions. I have also greatly appreciated the many people from the northside and throughout the community whom I have met, worked with, shared ministry with, drank coffee with and just laughed with over my years here. I offer the best of wishes to the Lakeview community as you begin this time of transition. You have excellent leadership, synodical support and a rich history of moving forward with change. Kris and I love you and will miss each of you. Peace, Pastor Dean and Kris too!
Drive Thru Pantry Still Happening
The Lakeview Food Pantry is open Monday afternoons. Please note the new winter hours, 2:00-4:00 pm, so that we can have it in daylight and keep everyone safer. It is a drive thru pantry. Patrons do not enter the building. Food is delivered to cars or to people walking in by our volunteers. At this time, patrons may use the pantry weekly, if needed.
Unfortunately the number of Covid 19 cases in our state continues to rise significantly. The number of Covid hospitalizations in Madison has also risen to a level that exceeds what was seen in April. So, given all these difficult circumstances, the council and I have decided to suspend all in-person worship at this time. This is being done for an indefinite period of time, as we cannot predict with the situation will improve. There will be no education time on Sunday mornings. The Wednesday Bible study will continue via zoom at 9:30.
You may attend worship via Zoom at 9:00 am. Or you may watch the service throughout the week on Facebook or Youtube once Terry edits and posts it. We give thanks to Terry Warnke for all his work during this time.

Interested in Membership?
It is not difficult to become a member at Lakeview. If you wish to join this congregation, you should call the pastor in the church office to set up a meeting. The meeting is about one hour in length. We will review who we are as a congregation and what our ministry is about. We 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.
