We invite you to bring questions and doubts as we all seek answers and faith. We are an Open and Affirming, Peace with Justice, accessible church.

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.
Thank you to those who attended our vigil. There will be more chances ahead to process and share. Some of us will need silence and time. Some of us will want to get busy with our existing efforts on reforming gun laws. Some of us will need more chances to gather to cry and connect. Knowing that each of us is holding this experience differently, we hope there is grace for one another in the days and weeks ahead. Please don’t hesitate to reach out for our support.
Rev. Nicole Lamarche, Pastor
Rev. Jackie Hibbard, Acting Associate Pastor
Responding to COVID-19
In this uncertain time our faith community is moved to respond quickly to stem the outbreak of COVID-19. Our Coordinating Council voted to suspend all church meetings, events and public worship. You can read the full statement from the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Church of Christ here.
Our leaders had already been working on sharing our progressive Christian message more broadly in 2020 using the many technologies at our disposal, and now we are speeding up our process. We invite you to join us this Sunday for our worship together, separately online.
View our Taize style worship service at 8:30 am Sunday with silence and chants via Zoom.
You can watch the Taize or Traditional service at cucclivestream.com.
Join us at 10:45 for a special Fellowship Hour on Zoom. Looking for the link to join? It will come in our Saturday mailing for regulars or you can email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name to be sent the link to join.
