During the COVID-19 pandemic, all church programming is happening online, including opportunities for children and families. We look forward to returning to in-person programming when it is safe to do so. If you have questions, concerns, or suggestions, please get in touch!

Kids Night In:
Next Date: TBA
Drop your K-5th grade kids off at church for a fun night of games and crafts. We’ll enjoy pizza for dinner. $10 for one child, $5/child for additional children. Meanwhile, parents can enjoy a night out! Please email Family Life Director Stephanie Moffitt to RSVP for your child(ren).
Next Date: TBA
Do you have a 3rd, 4th, or 5th grader living at your house? This gathering is just for them (and their friends are welcome too)! This group gathers once a month at church and then spend time together doing activities around town (bowling, hiking, strolling Pearl Street, eating pizza, etc.) Each gathering is from 3-5 pm, and your child will need a little spending money ($5-$10). Drop off and pick up will be at church, in the circle drive. Permission slips for traveling in volunteer vehicles will be available at each gathering, should we need to use cars for traveling (for example, to go bowling). Hope your 345 kid(s) can join us!

Children's Worship During the 10:30 AM Worship Service
Children aged 3rd grade and younger will gather for a Children's Moment during worship, and then head to a time of Children's Worship led by Family Life Director Stephanie Moffitt and parent volunteers. Parents will pick children up from the Parlor after worship. Older children, 4th grade and up, are invited to stay in the worship service with their families. Middle and high school youth are invited to assist with leading Children's Worship in the Parlor, or remain in worship.
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.
