From Pastor Paul
Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

choices, knowing that the Holy Spirit takes that choice and uses it in ways I
cannot begin to imagine.

Welcome to our website from Pastor Paul
Sisters and Brothers in
to All Saints Lutheran Church website. It is my hope that as
look through our website you will get a feeling for the community life
of All Saints. We are striving to be a missional community
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.

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
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
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.
