On June 12 the congregation voted to agree on a letter of intent with Boulder Housing
Partners and Frasier to sell the property and buildings of Mount Calvary to the two entities to
create an affordable housing site.
The opportunity to work with Boulder Housing Partners and Frasier enables us to stay on the
property, in the building, up to 15 years. Additionally, the prospect of having our property
turned into affordable senior housing, a need so great in the Boulder area, helps further our
mission of being a blessing to others.

began to envision what the sale of the property could mean to our church and the community
we serve. The ability to dream big without the confines of a mortgage brings much
anticipation to our members.
