A fundraiser to replace a boiler system more than 10 years ago has led to a continued and thriving ministry for a Grand Haven church.

Since it launched the recycle ministry in 2008, First Christian Reformed Church has turned over more than 2.5 million pounds of recycled material. On average, the church recycles about 200,000 pounds a year, according to Joan Groenhout, who has volunteered for the ministry since it started.
