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.

“Turn and See Something New”
John baptizes Jesus and then he says he sees the Spirit descend like a dove and remain on Jesus. Why does John use the language of water and dove to connect Jesus to being anointed to be the Lamb of God? It might be as a way to connect the Spirit that Jesus draws us toward with the very real and earthy components of nature. The infusion of the Spirit into not only this singular man Jesus, but into all the earth. That is what I think of in the Pentecost story too, when it says “there came a sound like the rush of a violent wind” and it entered the whole room where the disciples were. The scriptures are good at using the elements of water, air, earth and fire to connect us to the Divine with us. That partly relates to the real connection ancient people made to their environment. But it is helpful even now to guide us to the reality that God is in and among all of life.
