During the Covid-19 OUtbreak
As with so many other places of worship and business, Cairn’s building is currently closed. We are still connected as a community online as we continue to meet, worship and serve the community.
Our worship has moved to a Zoom platform. If you would like to participate in worship as a guest please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will ensure you receive the information you need. We will also be posting our recorded zoom worships on the Our Worship page.
Blessings to all of you. We hope you will visit us when this crisis is past.

We also sponsor Cairn's Free Library of Peace and Justice books.
Peace and Justice Action Group
We believe that tithing is a spiritual practice rooted in scripture that we grow into and we have an annual stewardship emphasis that teaches about giving and shares the ways our annual giving is used.
Each year a percentage of our congregational giving to our operating budget goes to outreach beyond Cairn. We currently give 5% of our annual income to support a variety of charitable organizations.
We have six annual offerings that go to our denomination to do wider ministry. These offerings support the general church, new church development, anti-racism and reconciliation ministries, secondary education, and our Central Rocky Mountain Region.
Many of us also support Cairn through a Safeway Gift Card, King Soopers rewards card and through Amazon Smile.
To give to offerings, capital campaign, or outreach, use the give button below.
Important Update: During the COVID-19 outbreak in Boulder County, we have suspended all outside group usage, in order to limit physical contact with one another.
We have a variety of groups that use our building during the week to host events and we believe strongly in sharing our space for the good of the community. We have a sliding scale donation recommendation. Let us know if you are looking for a space or download the Building Use Form and return it to us. Please see the calendar for a detailed description of each group that currently uses our building.
