A NEW WORSHIP SCHEDULE COMING SEPTEMBER 12, 2021

Starting in January 2020 at our Annual Meeting where the congregation nominated a wonderful group of people to prayerfully and thoughtfully come up with the recommendations, we decided it was time to start the process of discerning a new schedule that would allow for another worship service. The group interviewed other churches, worked with all of our different stakeholders from PCE, to the Choir, Taize, etc. did surveys, hosted breakouts and more to come up with something that worked for most of us. Then as the group convened and the pandemic happened, we realized that whenever we were ready to come back in person, we would need another service anyway simply to accommodate all of our people given the size of our sanctuary and how we won't be able to pack everyone in like we did before all of this. We are truly grateful for the work of that committee! The Vision 2020 workgroup consisted of Beth Cole, Pete Terpenning, Leslie Hartten, Liz Tilton, Tom Corrigan, Lynda Freund, Sarah-Dawn Haynes, Nicole Lamarche, Jackie Hibbard.
Here is an essential thing to remember from their Recommendations! "We recognize that any changes will initially be an experiment, and we will need to continue to receive feedback in order to determine which parts are working and which parts need to be modified."

Grieving, Making Space and Connecting
To our beloved CUCC community here in Boulder and beyond, our hearts are broken and heavy. We are grieving; we are sad; we are angry. We mourn the loss of the lives of the ten people killed on March 22nd 2021. They were our neighbors, our friends, our community. We mourn yet another layer of trauma in an already trying year. We mourn for the employees of King Soopers, for members of law enforcement and all first responders who are traumatized by this horrific event. We mourn that some of us are reminded about past traumatic events and triggered once again. And we mourn the loss of Officer Eric Talley, who responded to many calls with compassion over the time of his service. Whether rescuing a family of ducks on Table Mesa Drive, responding to individual homes, assisting our congregation during our 2020 hate crime or rushing into a shooting scene - he was a hero, husband, son, father and beautiful human.
At the same time that we mourn, we also celebrate. We celebrate all of the love and caring that has been expressed and the generosity that is already coming forward to support those impacted by this tragedy. We celebrate the EMT’s, doctors and nurses who offered compassionate care in a crisis. We celebrate the kindness that has been released and the community connections that are blossoming.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out for our support.
Rev. Nicole Lamarche, Pastor
Rev. Jackie Hibbard, Acting Associate Pastor
