Everyone is on a spiritual journey: infants, children, youth and adults of all ages. At First Church Boulder, we welcome ALL people, wherever they are in their faith-journey, and commit to walk with them as they explore the paths that are meaningful to them. In our journey, we seek to walk in the Way of Jesus (and other deeply-grounded spiritual persons and communities). We gather on Sunday mornings, Tuesdays at lunchtime, and sometimes on other days.


Sunday Programs

SACRED STORIES (formerly called Bible Workbench) meets in the second-floor conference room at church on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am. How do YOU read between the lines? How does YOUR story connect and resonate with the Bibles’ timeless stories? Our Reading Between The Lines curriculum guides and invites us to engage with, explore, question, deeply listen, and share how we experience the weekly lectionary text as alive and happening today – in our individual lives, and in our communities and our world. Spirited conversation and different points of view enrich our experience. Sacred Stories is facilitated by Lisa Carr and Jon Kottke.


Other Offerings “…for the journey”
