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.
Drive Thru Pantry Still Happening
The Lakeview Food Pantry is open Monday evenings from 4:30 to 6:30 pm. 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. Today we learn of a new prison outbreak as well. Even though the President says we don’t have to fear Covid, we do have to be wise and practice the best mitigation strategies that we can. Especially since many of us will not receive the same intense health care treatment that political leaders receive if we contract the virus. 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 at 9:30 will continue.
Beginning this weekend, 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.
Pastor Dean misses cooking for senior lunches and special events. And, sadly, we won’t be able to host our usual community Thanksgiving dinner this year. So, we’ve come up with a creative solution in Covid times. Reserve your free lasagna-meat or vegetable-dinner, with salad, bread and cookie (though donations are welcome), cooked by Pastor Dean, through the church office by 11/13 and come pick it up on November 17th 4:30-6:00.

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.
