We want to share our worship plans and actions as we continue to monitor the pandemic and national emergency. We are concerned for all our parishioners' and visitors' welfare and are striving to do what is best for everyone.


All Saints Lutheran Church continues to put the health of it’s  congregational members and community first and foremost. With the recent decision made by the Common 4 (Jackson County, MO; Johnson County, KS; Unified Gov’t of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, KS; City of Kansas City, MO) to enforce a “Shelter in Place” order for it’s citizens, we are temporarily suspending all activities, including staff presence at our facility. Currently, we expect to re-open Monday, April 27, 2020 and our first worship service is set for Sunday, May 3, 2020, pending further government actions. If you would like more information regarding our parish, please feel free to reach out to us on our Facebook page  or the contact page on our website. We want everyone to stay safe, stay smart and stay healthy. Peace to all--

As you may have heard by now, the federal government is recommending less than 10 people in any gathering for the next 15 days. With that in mind, ASLC is cancelling our worship services for March 22nd and 29th, as well as the Lenten service set for March 25.


In addition, other social gatherings and meetings are also cancelled. This includes Creative Friends, choir (both vocal and bells) practices, Project Comfort, and Girl Scouts. The youth group is also postponing the synagogue trip set for Friday, March 20. Once that date has been re-set, we will communicate with the congregation. 


We expect this quarantine to last through the end of the month (March 31st), but based on future developments could be extended. We will let you know of any changes should they occur.

We want to share our worship plans and actions as we continue to monitor the pandemic and national emergency. We are concerned for all our parishioners' and visitors' welfare and are striving to do what is best for everyone.


At this time, we will continue to offer our worship services at the normal times.


1) We have already instituted a modified "Sharing of the Peace".


2) We will begin this Sunday (March 15) NOT passing the offering plate, but providing a spot at the sanctuary entrance for you to drop off your monetary donation.


3) We have always recommended immediate hand sanitizer use for our communion assistants before participating in our communion liturgy, but now will ask that be accomplished before the beginning of that segment of our worship.


4) If you, as an individual, feel it is best to not physically attend worship services, we have the weekly scripture lessons on our website, https://aslcbs.org/. As available, we will also begin offering the text of Pastor George's sermons for your use.


As you are aware, guidelines regarding our society's situation can change quickly. If, for any reason, we feel it is best to cancel worship services, we will notify you via this website, the FB page and through our text service. If you haven't yet signed up for text notifications, you can do that at any time, following these instructions:


How to sign up:


On your phone, text the keyword EZASLCBS to 484848. In a few seconds you'll get a confirmation text and when you reply to that, you're in.


We hope this information is helpful. If you have any questions, you are welcome to message us here, and we will do our best to answer them as quickly as possible.


Peace to all during this Lenten season.
