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.

In the Neighborhood: Love Your Neighbor – Monday, August 29, 2016
Mark 12:13-17, 28-34
Based on the book The Art of Neighboring by Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon
I am just finishing a good book recommended by Biff Warren (see above). This book is about how we can transform the world by just getting to know our actual neighbors. That we should stop focusing so much on our metaphorical neighbors around the world (although they, too, are important to us) and spend a lot of time and energy cultivating the relationships in our own backyards.
I have talked to some of you about this and fortunately many of you do know your actual neighbors, but I’m not sure that we collectively do. Does NUMC know who our neighbors are? And if we don’t, what can we do to change that?
