Given the extreme cold and unsafe windchill, we have decided to CANCEL TONIGHT’S WINTER SOLSTICE CELEBRATION. Please stay warm and safe at home, everyone! We wish you many blessings as we celebrate the arrival of winter (no kidding!), and joyfully anticipate the return of the light!.
On Thursday, December 22nd, from 6:00-7:30 pm, join us on our peaceful candlelit, indoor Labyrinth for the Winter Solstice Celestial Celebration. We’ll welcome winter, celebrate the longest night of the year, and joyfully anticipate the return of the light. Come, walk, and leave as your Spirit directs you during this time.
The Labyrinth is an accessible space; elevator access is available.
There is no admission charge; ALL are welcome at this FREE community event.
Want to join the Labyrinth’s email mailing list? Email the CHURCH OFFICE to be added to the list.
Parking Suggestions: Parking is available in the underground garage below the TGTHR (formerly Attention Homes) Apartments, next door to First Church. To access this garage, turn into the alley from either 14th or 15th Street (between Spruce and Pine Streets), and enter the garage opposite the church building. Look for spaces marked “FUMC Parking;” many spaces open up to FUMC use after 6:00 pm on weekdays. Paid street parking in the neighborhood around First Church must be paid until 7:00 pm on weekdays. There is some free-of-charge street parking; please read signage carefully. There are also two paid parking lots on 15th Street, both within two blocks of the church. One is between Walnut and Pearl, and one is between Pearl and Spruce. Please leave parking spaces in the church’s circle driveway available for folks who need closer access to the building.
Public Transit: First Church is located two blocks from the downtown Boulder Walnut Street bus station (corner of 14th and Walnut). Both local and regional busses serve this station.
ALL are welcome! For 25 years, First Church Boulder has been a Reconciling Congregation, fully welcoming of LGBTQIA+ people and their loved ones.
