Welcome to Living Water Church

A Place For You To Grow – A Place For You To Belong


God never intended for you to live your life alone. He’s always with you and He has given you other believers in Christ to be with you on the journey. A wonderful peace is yours when you discover God’s plan for your life. His plan has always been to have a personal relationship with you!


Living Water Church is here to help you discover your destiny. We believe that Church isn’t just a place you go to; it’s also a family you belong to and in that family you will learn what it means to be a follower of Christ. As a member of the Church Family you will also learn more about God, others and yourself.

We want to tell you a little about Living Water Church. Over 35 years ago we started out as a Prayer Meeting in Frank & Phyllis Dupree’s living room in Laurel, NY on Long Island’s east end. Soon we grew and on January 1, 1978 we moved into a storefront building in Jamesport, NY. As we continued to grow we knew we needed more space and a place of our own where we could continue to grow and reach more people with God’s message of hope. We purchased property on the border of Aquebogue and Riverhead and built our first church building. For the next seven years we built several times, adding classrooms, offices, a new sanctuary and more. Now we have plans for another major building expansion, if you’d like to know more about it please let us know.

In November of 1979, George Dupree was ordained as an Associate Pastor. George and his wife Carolyn served in children’s and youth ministries as well as George serving as the leader of the worship ministry. In August of 1988, Pastor Rick Saladon was ordained into the ministry of Living Water as an Associate Pastor, serving in the teaching ministries at the church.
In October of 1991, Pastor Frank turned the position of lead pastor over to Pastor George Dupree.

The current ministry consists of Lead Pastors George and Carolyn Dupree, Associate Pastor Rick Saladon, Minister Joel Dupree, Elders Linda Saladon and Pat Scionti. Pastors Frank & Phyllis Dupree are still actively involved in the ministry of Living Water.

Today, nearly 300 people call Living Water Church home. We’d be glad to have you as a part of our growing family! We’ve outgrown the living room and the storefront days and we have continued to outgrow our facilities and we believe that all of that is a sign of a healthy church. Most importantly, we still continue to reach people in every way possible in order to give them the opportunity to really know God in a personal way.


For more than three 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.


Whether you are someone seeking to know God or a person who has received Jesus into your life, Living Water Church has something for you.
