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.

Upcoming Events

Sunday, 3/25: Parade of Palms

Calling all youth and kids to participate in a parade of palms on Palm Sunday, March 25th. Come on out to Pine Street for the gathering, which starts at 9:45 am. After that, all kids and youth should come directly to the church and meet in the narthex for instructions on our own parade of palms during morning worship. Just bring your smiling face, and we will provide the palms. Hoping to see all our kids and youth there!

Sunday School and Child Care

10:45 - 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 Sanctuaries

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.
