Youth at First United Methodist Church of Boulder
During the school year, the FUMC Youth Group meets a couple of Wednesday nights a month from 6:30-8:30 pm in the youth room on the second floor. All 6th-12th graders (and their friends) are welcome! During the summer months, we plan fun get-togethers when a critical mass of us are in town.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS for these Upcoming Events:
September 10th – Welcome Home Sunday
During the 10:30 am service, we’ll kick off a new year of school and church, recognize our Sunday school teachers, and bless funds we’ve collected for backpacks and school supplies for Whittier Elementary School students. We’ll be making our famous quesadillas for the potluck lunch after church on the patio….maybe something else? Share your ideas! There will also be games on the lawn. Join us!

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.
Mission Trip 2017
Throughout each year, our youth do mission activities locally. Most years, they also do a mission trip in the spring or summer. 2017 was an exceptional year, as our youth traveled to Guatemala to do mission work in that beautiful but impoverished country. Here is a bit more about the trip in Youth Director Heidi Lewis’s words:
“We went to the Guatemalan highlands, just outside of Chichicastenago. We were an intergenerational group of 23 people from First United Methodist Church of Boulder and Mountain View United Methodist Church (also in Boulder). We spent a week there building a new home out of cement blocks for a family of 7. We also spent time building a wall around the local elementary school.”
