Our Story

How it all started...

God does big things with ordinary people.

On New Year’s Eve in 1969, Phyllis Dupree sat down with her husband, Frank, in their Long Island home to watch preacher Billy Graham on television. That night, they found themselves on their knees in their living room, giving their lives to Jesus. It was a moment that changed the couple’s lives — and the lives of many to come!

In 1975 they began holding prayer meetings in their living room, the meetings quickly grew. On January 1, 1978, the church moved to a storefront building in Jamesport, and then two years later established at our current location in Riverhead.

Today, a couple hundred people call Living Water Church home. We would be glad to have you as a part of our growing family!

Expanding the vision...

We have far out grown the living room and the storefront days, and we have continued to outgrow our facilities. We believe that all of that is a sign of a healthy church!

Most importantly, we continue to reach people in every way possible in order to give them the opportunity to really know God in a personal way.

Where we are headed...

For more than four decades, we have seen God do amazing things in and through this church. We are so humbled and amazed by the love and grace that God shows us every day and how He has blessed us with such a great church family.

Living Water is a church consisting of people of all ages, ethnicities and cultures. Although we are different in many ways, we have this in common — we’re all interested in growing in our love and relationship with Jesus Christ.

God is always doing something new, and we are moving forward together in His great plan!
