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.

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.

We are a proud member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

Our Mission

​​Worship Updates

In accordance with State and City guidelines,  LakeView Lutheran Church is now offering limited in-person worship: preregistration is required 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!

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." 


Jennifer Thomson



“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."
