Lakeview Lutheran Church

A Warm and Caring Community


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.



The season of Advent begins on Nov 29/30.  This year, all services during Advent, including Saturday evening, will be held in the main sanctuary. Each week during Advent you are invited to bring gifts to share with local agencies who serve people with needs.
