UPCOMING EVENTS

** DRIVE-IN WORSHIP EVERY SUNDAY AT 9:30 AM **

You are invited to drive to our parking lot on Sunday mornings; come early before 9:30 a.m.  Ushers with masks and gloves will hand out bulletins (Communion elements when appropriate), receive offerings, show you where to park, and help you with your car radio, if you need it. 

Tune your radio to 90.3 FM and turn it on as soon as you are parked.

Please bring masks for yourselves as a precaution. A pre-taped online worship will still be available every Sunday on our website, under the "Worship Services" tab or the "Worship Online" bar.

** We hope and pray to see you soon! **

Initial Compostables Site at Faith

A COMMUNITY COMPOSTABLES RECYCLING DROP-OFF SITE IS UP-AND-RUNNING AT FAITH LUTHERAN CHURCH IN MILTONA!

 

What a great way each one of us can help care for God's good and beautiful Creation!

HOW IT WORKS:

  1. Use paper sacks -or- buy compostable (plastic-like) bags at the grocery store.
  2. Fill your sacks or bags with food and biodegradable paper scraps (see the list below.)
  3. Bring them to our church and place them in the tubs.

NO PLASTIC BAGS PLEASE ... THANK YOU!

Acceptable Items for Composting

All food scraps including … fruit vegetables, meat, fish, bones, eggs, dairy, peels, pits.

Coffee grounds, filters, teabags, wood stir sticks

Paper towels, napkins and tissues.

Paper towel and toilet paper rolls.

Paper egg cartons and paper bags.

Hair and fur.

Popsicle sticks, toothpicks, and chopsticks.

Houseplant trimmings and flowers.

Certified compostable bags.

Certified compostable products.  Items with the BPI or Cedar Grove certified compostable logo on the product or packaging.

Unacceptable Items …

Grass, leaves, or yard waste of any kind.

Plastic bags, plastic utensils, metal or plastic condiment cups.

Plastic, metal, or glass of any kind.

Dead animals, pet waste, litter or bedding.

Fast food wrappers and frozen food boxes.

Microwave popcorn bags.

Paper plates, bowls, and cups without BPI or Cedar Grove certification.

Single-serve coffee pods (e.g. K-Cups©).

Wood, liquids, diapers, trash … or anything you are unsure can be composted.

Organics (Food Scraps and Soiled Papers) make up approximately 38% of what is still in the garbage – even after strong single sort recycling programs.  Organics recycling is an important part of effective waste management programs.  Items are returned back to nature through commercial composting – reducing resource use and greenhouse gas emissions.  Organics recycling also reduces demand and wear and tear on local garbage processing facilities – such as Pope/Douglas’ Material Recycling and Waste to Energy Facilities.

THANK YOU TO POPE DOUGLAS SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT FOR PARTNERING WITH OUR CHURCH TO PROVIDE THIS VALUABLE SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITY!

 

COLLECTION FOR PARKERS PRAIRIE FOODSHELF

SUNDAY JULY 26TH

 

On the last Sunday in July we’re asking everyone to please bring gifts of money to donate to the Parkers Prairie Foodshelf in this time of economic uncertainty.  Checks should be written directly to the “Parkers Prairie Foodshelf".

Please let your family, friends, and neighbors know what we are doing, and invite them to Faith Lutheran Church that morning.  Even if they cannot stay for our Parking Lot Worship at 9:30 a.m., we will be most grateful if they can come and make a donation.

Thank you ... and God bless!
