Did you know Luther said?

“My heart, which is so full to overflowing, has often been solaced and refreshed by music when sick and weary.”

From Pastor Paul

Sisters and Brothers in Christ: 

One of the things that I enjoy about my job is sharing God’s word with you in worship each week. I find great joy in reading the texts appointed each week and spending time thinking about how they apply to God’s people at All Saints and in the communities in which we interact, be it at school, work, play or wherever.

Often times I find that I have much more to say than is really possible in the midst of a worship service. A typical week finds me trying to decide which idea of many I want to go with and how to best express that idea. I find myself wanting to go in two directions and knowing I can only go in one. So I make choices, knowing that the Holy Spirit takes that choice and uses it in ways I cannot begin to imagine.

You might notice in the next few weeks we are getting readings from Paul’s 1st letter to the Corinthians—a fantastic letter written by Paul.  It is one of my favorites. This being the month of February, plus Valentine’s Day, it’s easy to want to wander down the path of 1 Corinthians 13.  Many of you are very familiar with the 13th chapter of 1st Corinthians; it is often referred to as the “love chapter.”  You know the verse I’m talking about—“And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love.”   < 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
