Embrace the Community, Transform the World!
“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.” Matthew 10:40
Niwot United Methodist Church welcomes and honors everyone without regard to sexual orientation, race, nationality, gender, family structure, ethnic background, economic circumstances, difference in ability, culture or age. You are actively invited to visit, fully participate in, and join our Christian community.
At Niwot UMC, we as a congregation strive to create a caring, friendly environment where Christians can come together for worship, study, growth and fellowship to enhance our spiritual journey.
We strive to understand and appreciate the diversity in our community and in our world. We are eager to share our fellowship because we believe we can learn from and help one another.
We believe that all are loved by God. We believe it’s good to question. We believe a church isn’t a building. We believe that when you truly embrace diversity, you embrace God.
Founded in 1870, our community-based church has helped Boulder County become what it is today, and we look to the future with open hearts, open minds, and open doors. Our congregation consists of families from Niwot itself, as well as Longmont, Hygiene, Boulder, Louisville, Lafayette, Broomfield, Erie, Berthoud, and Denver.

Colossians 2:6-10, 16-19
What I read in this letter to the church at Colossae is almost a warning about ‘church law.’ Paul is warning the church not to be caught up and bound in what the official regulations are, but to be caught up in Christ instead. He is saying that the letter of the law regarding circumcision or dietary laws or whatever are not the focus. The focus is our relationship with Christ and on our willingness to follow Christ and let Christ and his inclusive love lead the way in our lives. It isn’t saying that we can be reckless in how we practice our faith, but that we allow love to guide us, through Christ, instead of “human traditions,” as Paul puts it.
