Noel’s Church Locator

Because there are so many college students and other transients in our church, we experience constant turnover. People graduate, get jobs, and move all the time.

One of the most common questions I get is

“Do you know of a church in [INSERT CITY NAME]?”

Most of the time, I don’t. Some of the time I do. This page is my best attempt at helping Riv people find a church when they move out of the Lansing area.

Here are three lists of churches that may be helpful:

Acts 29 – These are churches affiliated with Acts 29, a church planting network we work closely with.  I highly recommend churches on this list and I know a lot of these pastors personally.

Gospel Coalition – These are churches that are committed to renewing our faith in the gospel of Christ and to reforming their ministry practices to conform fully to the Scriptures.

Noel’s Church Locator – I am not “vouching for” every church on this list. Every one of them has a different flavor, leadership model, and differing doctrine on open-handed issues. I have done my best to do a little bit of research on the churches that land on my locator, but often I am going on the recommendation of someone who is connected to Riv and told me about the church.

If you would like me to consider adding a church to my locator, please email me ( the contact info of any churches that you feel people may want to check out. The info I need is:

Church Name
City and State
Denomination and/or Know Affiliations
Any Additional Comments

I can’t promise I will add every church I hear about or that I will do so fast, but life is full of disappointments, isn’t it?
