Shiny Paper

September 30, 2017

The Shiny Paper team thanks you for your continued support. Kent Giese and Charley Korsch have improved our storage and we are ready for more paper. Bring your shiny paper in any container and put it in the carts located in the hallway between the kitchen and Lakeview Social Hall. Team members will sort, pack, and stack into the required white bags from Verso.

We are close to reaching our goal for 2017 of $1,200 for the church budget with another trip to Verso of at least 5,000 lbs. We will keep you posted in the Sunday Bulletin.

Bring on the shiny paper.

Roadside Clean-up Oct 21

September 30, 2017

First United Methodist Church sponsors one of the Saint Louis County Roadside Cleanup locations, and twice a year, schedules a time to make our community a little nicer.

Our cleanup area is a two-mile stretch of Maple Grove Road, from Lindahl Road to Solway Road.

The next cleanup time will be on October 21, from noon to 2 pm. We always need more help to make the workload a little lighter. Please call the church office at 218-727-5021 or contact Bill Alexander at if you are interested.

You should dress for the weather, bring gloves, and wear footwear suitable for walking in ditches. Meet us at the Faith Baptist Church parking lot at Midway and Maple Grove. We will supply beautiful yellow vests and stylish garbage bags.

Hope to hear from all of you. Wouldn’t that be a sight to behold?
