Laura began attending The River Church in 2018 during their Fall Camp Meeting.  The anointed preaching, teaching, prayer, and worship reignited her hunger for God and pursuit of Jesus.  She is involved with The River Outreach Ministry and is currently a part of the children’s ministry team.

Laura has worked at Costco for 18 years.  She has four adult children and loves spending time with her grandchildren.

You couldn't ask for a better church. The River is the Real Deal no fake philosophical religion here. If you want religion don't go to The River. If you want to know Jesus and be loved on by real people of God with real issues of their own then Come to the River Church for Change.

God bless you!

—Charles Tyree

Good God, good people, good hearts, good preaching, good servers.

can't ask for more than that.

—Meg Ferguson

I've personally experienced more healing and restoration among these people more than anywhere, NOT because of programs, titles, famous people or books, but the reason is their simple devotion to Jesus Christ of the Bible, as evidenced by how they love each other and make space for the Holy Spirit to have His way among them.

This church has literally saved my life it's amazing and I've never felt so much love from so many people. It is not like any church I have ever been to. Pastor Lew has brought back my motivation and drive to keep pushing forward during this dark struggle. I've never had so many people love me in such a short amount of time for who I am. There is literally no judging or criticism.

— Johnny Roberts

This church is full of love

and people who love Jesus.

If you want to never be the

same in a positive way,

come to this church!

—Angie Millard

This church has real, authentic

people who know what it is to

people come together, the Holy

Spirit flows. Love it here!
