Echo Valley Church of God in Christ, Mennonite in Rimbey, Alberta, Canada began in 1989 when the first couple moved to the area. Fourteen more families moved to Rimbey in the next two years.

Initially services were held in homes. A church in Rimbey was rented briefly in 1990, but in September 1990 a church building in Bluffton was purchased.

Members were engaged in vocations like dairy or hog farming, carpentry, trucking, feed mill operation and nursing.

Minister Harvey K. Toews was the first resident minister. In 2010, Bert Boese of Linden, Alberta served as nonresident minister, and in 2019 Lorne Schellenberg and David Colbert served as ministers.

The church supports the Echo Valley Christian School.
