Welcome to Blue River!

We’re glad you’re here!

Blue River is a church that seeks to do three things:

  • worship God Biblically;

  • teach believers the Word of God; and

  • proclaim the Gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ alone

We invite you to our services, to join with us in our work, and to share in our fellowship. We strive to emphasize basic New Testament teachings, and practice the New Testament ordinances.

It’s Time for Vacation Bible School at Blue River!

We will be having Vacation Bible School, June 20-24 from 9 – 11:30 a.m. each day (until 1 p.m. on Friday) with a program on Sunday, June 26 at 7 p.m.

“Kookaburra Coast” is an epic Australian adventure where kids discover unique destinations and exotic animals, complete with jeep excursions, kangaroos in the outback, and the Great Barrier Reef. God’s glorious handiwork in Australia will lead to students seeing His life-changing glory through adventures with Moses. Like Moses, they will never be the same!

The week will be full of games, crafts, music, snacks, and most importantly, learning about Jesus and the Bible.

For more information or to register, you may call the church at 260-691-2605 or email vbs@blueriverchurch.org with parents’ names, telephone, address, along with child’s name, school grade completed, age, and any allergies. There will be classes for children who turned 3 before September 1, 2021 through 8th grade.

Jackie Zumbrun and Jenna Gingerich are co-directors.

Come and have a GREAT time . . . and bring your friends and neighbors!

Blue River Covenant Brethren Church is located on the Noble-Whitley County Line Road, 1.5 miles east of State Road 9, 2 miles west of U.S. 33, 1.5 miles south of Merriam, Indiana.
