February Happenings

Wednesday Worship Service

Today marks the beginning of the season of Lent. All are welcome to join us for an Ash Wednesday Worship service at 7 pm in the sanctuary at All Saints Lutheran Church. During the service Pastor Pokora will distribute ashes and preside over Holy Communion.

Introduction: On Ash Wednesday we begin our forty-day journey toward Easter with a day of fasting and repentance. Marking our foreheads with dust, we acknowledge that we die and return to the earth. At the same time, the dust traces the life-giving cross indelibly marked on our foreheads at baptism. While we journey through Lent to return to God, we have already been reconciled to God through Christ. We humbly pray for God to make our hearts clean while we rejoice that “now is the day of salvation.” Returning to our baptismal call, we more intentionally bear the fruits of mercy and justice in the world.


Joel 2:1-2, 12-17 – Return to the Lord, your God

Psalm 51:1-2, 6-7, 10-12 – Have mercy on me, O God, according to your steadfast love. (Ps. 51:1)

2 Corinthians 5:20b–6:10 – Now is the day of salvation

Matthew 6:1-6, 16-21 – The practice of faith

Sunday Worship Service

All are welcome to worship with All Saints Lutheran Church on February 26th at 10 am – First Sunday in Lent

Introduction: Today’s gospel tells of Jesus’ temptation in the desert. His forty-day fast becomes the basis of our Lenten pilgrimage. In the early church Lent was a time of intense preparation for those to be baptized at the Easter Vigil. This catechetical focus on the meaning of faith is at the heart of our Lenten journey to the baptismal waters of Easter. Hungry for God’s mercy, we receive the bread of life to nourish us for the days ahead.


Genesis 2:15-17; 3:1-7 – Eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil

Psalm 32:1-2, 5, 7, 10-12 – Mercy embraces those who trust in the Lord. (Ps. 32:10)

Romans 5:12-19 – Death came through one; life comes through one

Matthew 4:1-11 – The temptation of Jesus in the wilderness for forty days
