Did you know Luther said?
“Should anyone knock at my heart and says “Who lives here?’.”  I should reply, “Not Martin Luther, but the Lord Jesus Christ.”

From Pastor Paul

Sisters and Brothers in Christ:

The autumn air is beginning to set in. Daylight hours shorten. Life seems to have this sense of “settling in” of being “grounded in” the rhythm of rest.  I have written to you in the past couple of years about my joyful appreciation for this time of year within creation, especially here on the Western Slope. Ripe fields of alfafa and corn, orchards filled with apples and peaches patiently await their harvest in celebration of the food it will become for God’s creatures. Life in the wild is creating new life to celebrate another generation. It seems even the sun celebrates a change in its cycle with sunsets so incredibly beautiful no words can describe the splendor.  It is as if all creation is breathing in a deep breath and exhaling “Ah, rest.”

Rest is good. The chaos that through the summer had us running in circles is slowly transformed to a more peaceful sense of being. This autumn season brings a peace that must be proclaimed and shared. The presence of abundance in all we see and the peace we feel around us, in grain and beauty, wildlife and sunsets should stir us into a renewed relationship with one another and with the Creator of All. How can this beauty and abundance around us find us living in isolation? This season calls us into celebration with all creation, including our neighbors, family and friends, and yes, even with the stranger.

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
