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.


Every Sunday

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.

Eleanor_Rowan_Easter10:45 – 11:45 Children ages 5-11 are welcome to attend Children’s Sunday School, which meets during our 10:30 am worship service; children attend the first part of worship with their parents, and are escorted to Sunday School by a Sunday School teacher after the Children’s Time. Children learn lessons and participate in activities and crafts, often centered around the same scripture reading their parents are hearing in worship that morning.

safe sanctuariesAt 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.

childrenCANCELED Special Valentine’s Day Kids Night In/Parents Night Out
Friday, February 16

We are excited to offer “Kids Night In / Parents Night Out” once per month from 5:30-8:30 pm right here at church! Our next event will be a Valentine’s Day-themed Kids Night In on Friday, February 16; kids enjoy Valentine’s Day fun while parents can have a belated Valentine’s Day date night! 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 crafts, 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 Brown (formerly Kanaar), our Director of Family Life Ministries.
