HELPING OUR NEIGHBORS THIS WINTER: Warm Clothes Drive
We are collecting warm socks, hats, gloves, and jackets (adult sizes) for guests at Heartfelt Café, our church’s 3rd Sunday of the month hot lunch program. Socks should be wool or another thick material, sizes medium or large. Donations may be put in the large box in the church office. The warm clothes drive will wrap up in early February.
For questions or more information about our youth ministry and upcoming events, please email Heidi Lewis, our Youth Coordinator (hlewis712 at gmail dot com).
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.”
