DECEMBER FOOD DRIVE

During the month of December, Immanuel collects nonperishable foods for our local food pantry, St. Stephen’s, which is operated by Lutheran Community Services. Our needy neighbors sometimes must choose between food, medicine, and heat during these cold months. Any amount is welcome! Children often enjoy selecting food to donate. The donations will be blessed before being taken to the food pantry. Donations may be placed under the table in the foyer.

Thank you!

Outreach Ministry
