The Lives We Impact

Ministry is a job for all people, not just professionals. We encourage all Christians to take an active part in ministry, both in and outside of the church. For example:


During COVID19 we will be meeting on Zoom. Copy/Paste this link into your web browser and it will take you there! Worship is still every Sunday at 1030am!

We are in a very complicated time right now as COVID19 changes our world and communities. Here is the ELCA's response and a list of resources to help you understand the church's response and guide you in a new type of spiritual practices online. 

We know that we are not called together for ourselves alone, but for offering to others and the world the peace that God had has given us. We are committed to sharing this gift through ministries that promote justice and mercy, in acts of kindness and prophetic witness.

"One of my favorite churches I have ever attended. I don't live in Chicago. But, when I am visiting a friend who is a member, I frequently attend with her. Liala's sermons are thought provoking and engaging. The members are so kind and welcoming. I loved the Jesus Christ Superstar service last year."

COVID19 Calendar 


We are a community that rejoices in our diversity and shares a common commitment to grow and serve, to celebrate the gift of life and to use our individual gifts to make the world a better place.

We gather to hear the words of scripture, offer our prayers and gifts, and share a meal. Empowered by God's Spirit, we leave to live in sacrificial service to the world. Following Jesus' example, we strive to be an inclusive fellowship, breaking down all those barriers which divide us. We welcome all people regardless of age, race, religion, income or sexual life.

“I have been a member of LakeView Lutheran Church for over ten years. I have had nothing but love for our pastor, Pastor Liala and all our congregants. Truly, LakeView is a welcoming community, full of love, humility, caring, and most importantly, a place where the Holy Spirit dwells."
