Thank you for sermon

In memory of Gordy Gallion, we the family would like to thank Trinity Lutheran Church in Isle for the sermon given by Pastor Maunula, the ladies who provided lunch, Vera and Annette for providing music, and members of Trinity for friendship given at this time. Also to the people of Isle who enjoyed seeing Gordy out and about with his scooter and his loving dog “Sarge.”

A huge thank you to Dr. Bracken and nurses who took care of Gordy during the years of his fading health issues.

Grief Support Group

I know the loneliness, loss of hope, anger, the feelings of sadness and depression and how deeply the loss of a loved one can fill one’s life.

GriefShare helps group members apply biblical principles to the healing process after the death of a loved one. Throughout the videos and workbook, participants see how the gospel brings hope and restoration.

GriefShare seminars and support groups are led by people who understand what grieving individuals are going through and want to help. It is meant to help those people recover from their losses and look forward to rebuilding their lives.

The sessions are 13 weeks long and will be held on Mondays starting September 16 at Faith Lutheran Church in Isle. The group will meet from 6 until around 7:30 p.m. The cost per person is $15 which includes the workbook.

I encourage you to please reach out if you have lost a spouse, child, parent, family member or friend and you are struggling in your grief or if you know of someone that is.

You can sign up by contacting me at (218) 821-4703 or email at You can also register at Please feel free to call me or the church at (320) 676-3161 if you have any questions.

Michelle Sawatzky, Isle
