Who We Are

Lakeview Lutheran Church is dedicated to being a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), the largest body of Lutherans in this nation.  We are a welcoming community that seeks the diversity of gender, age, race, culture and sexual orientation.  Lakeview is committed to an outreach ministry that is global in nature. Hospitality is a valuable characteristic of all we offer from this place.

The congregation at Lakeview Lutheran Church believes that the foundation of who we are is defined by weekly worship and active outreach ministry.  We believe that we are called to worship and give thanks to a God who loves all of creation.  At Lakeview, Holy Communion is offered each time we gather for worship.  The body and blood of Christ, in this holy Eucharist, is available to all who believe in His true presence. We further believe that we are called to go into the world and express Christ’s love through our actions.
