Lakewood is temporarily closed due to COVID-19. We are hoping to open up our doors later this spring, and we are planning even now for a wonderful summer of ministry. We can’t wait to hear the beautiful sounds of students worshiping our Creator and look forward to hearing their stories of life-transformation. We fully trust the Lord no matter what happens, and our prayer is that this would be an amazing, fun-filled summer honoring Jesus! Please keep praying for all who are affected by the current crisis and for summer 2020.

We are excited to announce our new Executive Director Bryan Smith!  Bryan has been in camp and retreat ministry his whole life and brings fresh vision and experience to Lakewood Retreat.

We have heavy new wood frame plush chairs. These chairs take up much more space than our previous folding chairs, especially when stacked. Meals may no longer be eaten in Cypress and the chairs cannot be removed from the meeting room. If this change affects your group's plans please be sure to discuss with the office for solutions.
