COVID-19 and our Fellowship
During the public health emergency, Boulder Valley UU Fellowship has endeavored to keep our congregation both healthy and vibrant. Our Sunday services nourish our spirits with inspiring words and music. 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 Task Force uses guidance from local public health departments and the UUA to determine how best to keep us safe during the pandemic, using data from the website CovidActNow. We have adapted guidelines to the particulars of our congregation.
Join Us for Sunday Services
Currently, we offer services in our beautiful new sanctuary and simultaneously on Zoom. Sunday services begin at 10am.
In-Person: We expect all who attend in person to be vaccinated for COVID-19 if they are able, and everyone must wear masks. Following the service, you are invited to join us for coffee hour in our Fellowship Hall, where masks are optional. We encourage everyone to move outdoors, weather permitting, to lower the risk of exposure to Covid during periods of high transmission.
On Zoom: To join by computer, click 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 either in person or online.
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.
