​​Worship Updates

In accordance with State and City guidelines,  LakeView Lutheran Church is now offering limited in-person worship: preregistration is required (link to register may be found in our current E-news available under "Calendar" to your right) and masks and safety precautions must be observed at all times. See sign-up link below. We continue to meet for virtual worship on Zoom.  Copy/Paste this link into your web browser and it will take you there! Worship is still every Sunday at 10:30 am!


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 (or no religion at all), income, gender identity, or sexual orientation.

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:

"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."

We are half way through the month of June and mindful of how there are so many important markings contained in these 30 days.  Pride pulls us back into those painful times and forward toward the hope of freedom for all.  Covid has messed with our routine pushing the annual parade normally held the weekend closest to the Stonewall reaction (choosing to identify the violence that incurred as a result of a reaction to the police abuse as opposed to "riot" which has come to be interpreted as a strategy of the oppressed) to October.  But we will still mark that weekend with our second summer outdoor gather on Sunday. June 27 from 10:30am-12:30 pm.  We welcome all and invite folks with something to say through song, poetry dance, art, to come join us.  LOf course...there will be snacks.!

Resources to help leaders and members stay connected and resilient during COVID-19:
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 are a proud member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

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.

Celebrate Pride with us on June 27th from 10:30-12:30
