Children are a vital part of our congregation! We approach their education and care with joy and enthusiasm; they model love and liveliness for us all.
9:00-11:45 Nursery care is available for ages 0-4 in the first-floor nursery/preschool rooms from 9:00 am until the end of worship service.
10:45 – 11:45 Children ages 5-11 are welcome to attend Children’s Sunday School, which meets directly after the Children’s time during the 10:30 worship service. Children learn lessons and participate in activities and crafts, often centered around the same scripture reading their parents are hearing in worship that morning.
At First United Methodist Church of Boulder, we engage in Safe Sanctuaries practices to keep our children and youth safe. Safe Sanctuaries is an overt expression in making congregations safe places where children, youth, and elders may experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith. Click on the blue text above or the Safe Sanctuaries logo to learn more about these practices and how they are implemented in congregations around the country, including ours.
Upcoming Event: Kids Night In on Saturday, 9/24, 5:30-8:30 pm
We are excited to offer “Kids Night In / Parents Night Out” once per month on Saturday evenings from 5:30-8:30 pm right here at church. Our next Kids Night will be Saturday, September 24th! We would love to hear from families who would like to participate in this exciting night each month; parents enjoy some time for themselves while kids hang out at church. Your children are welcome to bring a friend! There will be songs, games, movies and tons of fun. This is a free service, but your donations are welcome to help with extra expenses such as pizza or snacks. If you would like to be a part of our Kids Nights program, please let us know by emailing Ellie Kanaar, our Director of Family Life Ministries.
