The River of Life Full Gospel Church is a church which has been blessed to serve the community for the past 34 years. It was founded by Sr. Pastor, Gregg Behlen, who strives daily to fulfill God’s mandate to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, house the homeless (Matthew 25:34-36) which he takes very seriously and has inspired in his congregation to do the same.
Our Outreach Ministry was created to do just that. It encompasses but is not limited to our Food Pantry, hosting a dinner for the homeless on the 1st Saturday of each month, family counseling 2 Saturdays per month which focuses on the individual development of each parent and their children so that they can come together to make a strong cohesive family unit whereby generational issues can be broken these sessions include a meal, as well as we visit senior centers weekly bringing hope to the elderly.
We also participate in the “Almost Home Project” which houses and feeds the homeless two nights per week during the winter months and we partner with other churches to house the homeless the remaining nights. We have a transitional home called “Mother Adina’s House” which transitions the homeless to self-sufficiency. We transport our homeless families to and from church services, programs and events. We also provide clothing for the homeless from generous donations.
We have Prayer Service on Monday evenings (7:00 pm – 8:00 pm) and Full Services on Thursday evenings (7:15 pm – 9:30 pm) and Sunday mornings (10:15 am – 12:30 pm).
