Did you know Luther said?

ďWhat man, if he were God, would humble himself to lie in the feedbox of a donkey or to hang upon a cross?Ē 

 

December 2019
From Pastor Paul

Sisters and Brothers in Christ:  

Iíve mentioned before how much I love the season of Advent.  In fact, if I had to choose, I would say that Advent is my favorite season in the church year.  I love the anticipation and preparation that comes with the idea that something marvelous is waiting for us around the corner.  

Too often, unfortunately, we forget to pause and enjoy the preparation.  Lists get longer and longer; patience grows thinner and thinner.  By the time December 24 rolls around, many of us are often so frazzled that we canít truly enjoy all that is happening and all that we have been so frantically preparing for.  

This Advent season I want to encourage you to stop for a moment and rest in the quiet, rest in the anticipation.  Find a way to savor the season.  Maybe you take a few moments in the very early morning when it is still dark and breathe in some fresh morning air, thinking about all that God has given you and continues to give you.  Perhaps you could take a few moments each day to write down one specific memory you have that builds toward Christmas.  Is there a tradition that is important to you?  Is it not the Christmas season if you donít experience something?  One memory I have from my internship, was the day of the Thanksgiving Parade in Wakeeney, KS.   ... < 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
