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.

Upcoming Events:

Sunday, March 25, 2018: Palm Sunday Parade of Palms

Calling all youth and kids to participate in a Parade of Palms on Palm Sunday, March 25th! Gather along Pine Street near the church at 9:45 am, to participate in the Pine Street Churches Parade of Palms outside. After that, all kids and youth should come inside the church and meet in the narthex for instructions on our own parade of palms during the morning worship service. Just bring your smiling face, and we will provide the palms. Hoping to see all our kids and youth there!

Sunday, April 1, 2018: Youth Serving Continental Breakfast on Easter

We’ll serve a continental breakfast on Easter featuring homemade hot cross buns! We’ll serve from 9:15-10:15 AM in the parlor, and serve again after the 10:30 am worship Easter worship service.

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.

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.”

Wrapping Presents for Our Partner Agency, Attention Homes

In December, FUMC’s youth gathered at Youth Coordinator Heidi Lewis’s home to wrap presents for homeless youth being served by our partner agency, Attention Homes.
