  • Dan and Cheryl Oie

    Connie and Family
    So sad to hear of the quick death of Pastor Al. You were both a strong influence back my formative years of music and ministry. From the days of the Artesians and church basketball teams and summer camp minitries, it all has been to the glory of God by his grace and faithfulness. I’m sure you expected more time together as a family and in ministry. Make God flood you with peace and completeness as you grieve.
    The Oie family (Peter, Granite Falls; Thomas, New Hope, MN; Mary, Kansas City, MO, Dan Oie, Plymouth MN, Tim Oie, Annandale, MN.) Peter is 96.

  • Sincere sympathy to the family of Pastor Monson. My parents Walter and Hilda Goetz always talked highly of him when he was at Our Savior’s. Blessed be his memory and God bless you with comfort at this sad time
