Christmas is about joy and happiness. It is about pretty decorations and lots of light. Right? That’s not the way Charlie Brown feels, though, not at all. He feels the opposite, in fact. His dog Snoopy’s decorations are ruining Charlie Brown’s Christmas. And the commercially-infused happiness that the Christmas play is generating is… less than happy for Charlie Brown. That’s because Charlie Brown can see beneath and behind and around and through the sugarplum-coated Christmas we all dream about. He knows that THAT celebration is surface only, and that there must be something more to this whole Christmas thing.
Embrace the Community, Transform the World!
“Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.”

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 no one who asks for help should be turned away. 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.
