Summer 2023 Lakewood Ministry Happenings & Events

A cornerstone of Lakewood Culture

In the early days of Lakewood, our founder, Carl Perry, would often show up to our amphitheater on Sundays, and give his testimony to our guests. He hoped to inspire people who weren’t saved, by sharing with them that it was by God’s grace that he was able to build this place, that has brought so much joy to so many people.

The descendants of Carl and Marion Perry, have carried on the tradition of sharing God’s message for the past sixty years, and will continue to do so for as long as God blesses us with the opportunity.

LCM offers Christian based programs for your whole family to enjoy; and all against the beautiful backdrop of all of God’s amazing nature! The magnificent Atlantic ocean, the tranquil lakes, the majestic live oaks and dignified pines, and all of the awe-inspiring wildlife.

So, whether you are seeking a deeper spiritual walk through Bible study, praise and worship, or developing a deeper relationship with friends and family; LCM offers something for everyone.
