Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Milan, Wisconsin hopes to schedule the dedication of its new building this October. The congregation and a Lutheran Church Extension Fund (LCEF) Laborers For Christ (LFC) team is in the process of finishing the drywall, siding and final touches this month.
The congregation discovered a way to “recycle” the scrap pieces of drywall. They used an old manure spreader as a dumpster, the spreader broke down the drywall scraps while it scattered the gypsum plaster over a farm field. Ingenious!
Drywall is gypsum plaster between two papers. Gypsum is a soft sulfate mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate. It can be used as a fertilizer.
