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.

Food Pantry Needs
We have seen a significant increase in the use of our church food pantry on Monday evenings. On a recent Monday, 34 households were served and that has been consistent in recent weeks. 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.
