Our hope is that our public worship, our life together, and the ways we serve would be an inviting witness of Jesus for our city and for the world.
WHO WE ARE
Lake Trails is made up of people in all walks of life. We are Epic employees, UW-Madison students, musicians, kids, small business owners, parents, public sector workers, and everything in between. We vary in age and stage of life but our hope together is that our public worship, our life together, and the ways we serve would be an inviting witness of Jesus for our city and for the world.
WHAT WE ASK OF OUR CONGREGATION
We recognize that we live in a world that can feel burdensome and hectic. So you won’t find a lot of elaborate programs here. Instead we ask that people do three things as a part of our congregation:
1. Make Sunday worship a priority.
2. Participate in 1 smaller gathering of our church, ideally one of our Community Groups.
3. Look for purposeful ways to enact love for their neighbors.
At Lake Trails we believe that the Bible tells the truth about who God is, who we are, and how we are to relate to God and the world he made. We join with other Christians from around the world and across the ages in affirming the Scriptural truths summarized in the Ecumenical Creeds (the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Chalcedonian Creed).
We also affirm the Westminster Standards as a faithful summary of what the Bible teaches.
Join Us for Worship
Join us Sundays at 10:15 am as we share God's story of love and mercy with you.
At Lake Trails, you won’t notice a lot of big church-wide initiatives (though they happen from time to time). Instead we want to support one another in the varied parts of Madison and beyond that are important to each of us.
Some ways Lake Trails members have served:
Medical and Dental Mission Work
Veterinary Mission Work
The mainstay of our lives with one another are our Community Groups. These are smaller gatherings that meet each week to fellowship, study the Bible and pray.
OTHER SHORT-TERM GROUPS
From time to time short-term groups meet to focus on a specific topic. These have included Bible studies, marriage, understanding suffering, racial reconciliation, and more.
