Our Story

We believe we are
recipients of grace—and it is a gift to be shared.

The concept of grace is rooted in the idea of receiving something we didn’t earn and don’t have to pay back. This is how it is with God’s love. In 1872, First Presbyterian Church was planted in the heart of Boulder with a vision to see Boulder experience this love. Today, as Grace Commons Church, we are still committed to being a church and a people for Boulder, with love.

We seek to orient our lives and our church to be for Boulder, with love.

God shows us through the life of Jesus that to love is to give. So, at Grace Commons we seek to not just be a church in Boulder, but a church uniquely for our city—opening our doors and our lives to create a welcoming place for people to experience spiritual discovery and relational connection.

IN BOULDER, FOR BOULDER

Deeply Rooted in Boulder

In 1872, First Presbyterian Church was planted in the heart of Boulder to offer gospel hope to the pioneers fast moving to the new town. Nearly 150 years later, we continue to be committed to providing a hub for our city to gather, study the Bible, and learn about the hope of Jesus.

A Future for Boulder, with Love

In 2020, we changed our name to Grace Commons Church and launched a capital campaign, For Boulder With Love. Over the next few years, we will transform our buildings to better serve the needs of our community for generations to come. We are eager for our name and our building to declare God’s great love.
