God has given us two hands, one to receive with & the other to give with. Make use of both!


We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. We strive to recognize and nurture the Christ in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. Our church is a thriving community of believers and lovers of the Word of God. Lakeside Lutheran Church and Preschool have a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. We hope you will join us for services on Sunday to experience for yourself fellowship in Christ.



Pastor Dahlke (PD) oversees all areas of ministry at Lakeside Lutheran Church while also serving as the lead teaching Pastor. He reminds us that “It’s All About Jesus” in each and every thing we do. His humor and love for others is contagious and we always look forward to what he’s got in store for our weekly message in worship. Originally from Wisconsin, coming from Iowa, he joins us in Venice, FL.   He’s married to Amy, and they have two children, Jameson and Faith.
