Did you know Luther said?
I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, I still possess.

November 2019
From Pastor Paul

Sisters and Brothers in Christ,  

Earlier in October, we heard the story of the healed Leper that was so grateful.  I have been thinking about this text over the past couple of weeks.  What am I grateful for?  What am I thankful for?  What are you thankful for? That question seems appropriate for this time of year, doesn’t it? After all we are in the month of November, which for many is synonymous with being grateful and thankful.   No doubt you are thankful for many things.  I hope that you are able to name them, claim them and, when possible, let others know for what you are thankful.

Something that went around social media last year was a challenge to name three things a day for seven days that you are thankful for.  I probably won’t name 21 things now, but I do want to share a few things I have been thankful for in the past few weeks.

1) I’m thankful for a dedicated group of folks that at any other congregation would be paid staff.  They are the people who make sure the church is clean, everything is set up, bulletins are printed, the sanctuary is prepared (and the list goes on) at ASLC.  These people work well together and are willing to help out, often before they are asked, and have taken on many different tasks whenever they arise.

2) I’m thankful for our council that continues to be a dedicated group who prayerfully continues to be mindful of this congregation and its resources in all decisions they make.

3) I’m thankful for all the volunteers; ASLC could not function the way that it does without volunteers.  I stopped to think about all the volunteers we have, and I began to lose count because there are so many different hands doing great work in this place.

4) I’m thankful for the opportunities ...

Welcome to our website from Pastor Paul

Sisters and Brothers in Christ,   Welcome to All Saints Lutheran Church website.  It is my hope that as you look through our website you will get a feeling for the community life of All Saints.  We are striving to be a missional community that is centered in Christ, grounded in prayer and a place where ALL of God’s people feel welcome.

No matter your religious background or where you are in your spiritual journey, there is a place for you here.  Maybe you grew up in church and have been a regular ever since, maybe you’ve been away from the church for longer than you can remember, maybe the whole church thing is something new, with both humility and confidence, we trust that it is Christ who invites you to meet him here. 

Worship begins at 10:00 a.m. every Sunday with communion on the first and third Sunday of each month.  Adult Bible study begins at 9:00 a.m., and Children’s Sunday school begins at 10:00 a.m. after the Children’s sermon.  We hope that you will be able to join us and experience meaningful worship.   We know that as a church, we cannot be all things to all people; but, we do welcome all people.  Make no mistake; we are broken, sinful people who are longing for the good news of God’s love spoken to us through Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit.  We work together, we play together and we pray together.  Sometimes we get things wrong and without intention, hurt each other.  Through it all we know that God’s love for us is greater than anything we can begin to imagine.  It’s this promise that we want to share with you.  The Holy Spirit is active in the members of All Saints! 
   
Blessings on your journey and we hope you find All Saints to be a place that reflects God’s boundless love for you as a child of God.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask myself by either calling the church office at 970-835-3667 or email me at PastorPaul@AllSaintsLutheranCO.org.  We would love to talk with you more about the ministry of All Saints in this community and in the world.

Servants together,
Pastor Paul Rosin
