Recently members of Immanuel Women In Mission and the Advent by Candlelight committee presented a check for $1377. to the St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry.  Due to Covid 19 the 17th annual Advent by Candlelight program was canceled, but monetary donations were accepted from the Immanuel congregation and Women In Mission.  In addition the Seed Money grant of $250. from Thrivent enabled the group to purchase toilet paper,  laundry detergent, dish soap. bar soap and tooth paste and more which were on the Pantry list of most needed items.  Advent by Candlelight is a program for women, held at the beginning of Advent to emphasize the true reason for the season.  This fellowship is much missed this year.  Immanuel Lutheran is located at 632 E. Hwy N, Wentzville and St. Vincent de Paul food pantry is located at 230 W. 4th Street in Wentzville.
