During the public health emergency, Boulder Valley UU Fellowship has endeavored to keep our congregation both healthy and vibrant. Our online Sunday services nourish our spirits with inspiring words and music, even as we are apart physically. Our religious education program offers dynamic programming to meet the needs of our families, while the neighborhood connectors and lay pastoral care associates offer support to our members, and we remain engaged in social justice efforts in our larger community.

The Fellowship’s COVID-19 Response Team uses guidance from both the State of Colorado and the UUA to determine how best to keep us safe during the pandemic. We have adapted the dial framework used by the state of Colorado to the particulars of our congregation. You can find details about what protocols are currently in place for staff, gatherings, and building use at the link below the dial. More detailed protocol links are at the bottom of this page.

Join Us for Online Sunday Services

Currently, all Fellowship gatherings, including Sunday services, have been moved online. Join us for service on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. by clicking on the link on our home page a few minutes prior to the scheduled start time. Especially during this time, it is good to be together. We would love to see you there.

We use the video conferencing service Zoom for our online services and meetings. Zoom can be accessed from any computer or mobile device with an internet connection.

New to Zoom?

If you haven’t used Zoom before, we suggest clicking the link a few minutes early as you’ll need to install a browser plugin (or app if on a mobile device) which should just take a minute or two. If you would like a quick primer on the Zoom features we use during services, here’s our 5-minute pre-service technology orientation. https://youtu.be/zPijgrj3_Ks

The Conversation Project and Covid-19

The many impacts of this pandemic are hard to take in, and can feel overwhelming. But spending some time thinking about your own needs and wishes should you become ill can be empowering. Rev. Lydia shares this video from The Conversation Project with you about what to think about in terms of end of life wishes in this unprecedented time we are in. 

Please feel free to reach out to Rev. Lydia, Constance Holden, or Scott Nelson and Mzia Chatara (our lay pastoral care associate coordinators), to discuss your plans or concerns during this time.
