“The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me.”
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

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?

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
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

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

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
