Did you know Luther said?
“The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.”

March 2019
From Pastor Paul

Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

As you are most likely aware, we are beginning our Lenten journey much later this year than we have in past years.  Lent begins on Ash Wednesday, March 6.  About three weeks ago, I started surfing the web looking for ideas to incorporate into our upcoming Lenten Journey.  As much as I would like to say that Lutherans do things the best, that isn’t always true.  I frequent the different web pages from the National Church offices of our different ecumenical partners, and I think I struck gold.

I found a suggested approach to Lent on the United Methodist Church website.  It was called “Lenten photo-a-day challenge” from 2017, and it sounded intriguing to me.  I thought perhaps we could adapt it to 2019 dates and give it a try.  Will you join me? 

Lent is typically observed as a time of simple living, prayer and fasting leading up to Easter.  But what is Lent  REALLY about?  Many spend the time in self-examination and reflection as modeled by Jesus in Matthew 4: 1-11 where he prayed and fasted for 40 days before beginning his ministry.  What happened during those 40 days of fasting and praying in the wilderness?

Some might say that maybe Jesus needed some time with God to sort through the major changes happening in his life.  Maybe he needed a break from family, friends and his regular routine in order to see God [and himself] more clearly.  Maybe he sought more time with God as he searched for direction and answers to the question that we, too, have from time to time: “Who am I called to be?”

We, too, are invited into this time of introspection. As we journey through this season of Lent, some will choose to give up something.   ... < more >

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
