From Pastor Paul
Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. -
Romans 12:12 (NRSV)
Sisters and Brothers in Christ:
Ninety-nine plus days ago, many were gathered in the sanctuary at All Saints for
worship. We had just begun our
season of Lent. It was the first
Sunday in Lent. There was word that
a virus had hit our nation and our state.
We left worship on that Sunday not knowing fully what lay ahead of us.
Within days, we knew that something called Covid-19 was impacting not
only our country but also the world. We knew that it was being taken quite
seriously and that we needed to follow suit.
Since that time, everything as we know it has changed, often daily.
We are all learning as we go, figuring out how to be church in ways that
we never would have imagined. Ninety-nine days later, we are still working on
how to do it. Six days ago, we
gathered once again, both in a way that was familiar to us � on-line and again
in-person which felt like a new experience.
I was so excited, but also had a feeling of uncertainty.
Amid the excitement and the uncertainty, the one thing I did know was
this � God has been with us every step of the way and will continue to be with
us each step of the way.
It is important to know the leadership of our congregation has been working
conscientiously. They questioned what worship would look like when we came
together and what precautions that would be needed.
Last Sunday, it finally happened.
But as we came together, we also knew not everyone was ready.
We have many who are at high risk to contract the virus.
Because of this, we have determined the best practices for providing safe
space in the sanctuary and meeting the requirements for gathering as outlined by
the various health agencies. We will also continue worshipping online.
We recognize this isn�t the ideal scenario for gathering as a faith
community, but for now it seems the best way of bringing us all together.
I am thankful for the time and effort so many people have contributed and
thankful that I get to work with them in the midst of this. As local, state and
national health department guidelines are updated, we will share with you.
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.
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
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.
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.
Pastor Paul Rosin
