Reverse Advent Calendar

As we prepare for the Advent season this year we will be doing a “Reverse Advent Calendar.” Most Advent calendars are designed to give a different little gift or chocolate for each day of the Advent Season. This Calendar works in reverse!  Instead of opening a new little gift each day in Advent, designate a bag or box to which you’ll add one item each day. This will also allow the opportunity for a prayer of Thanksgiving and a prayer for those in need.

Each day for 25 days beginning Nov. 5 we challenge you to add an item of food to a donation box or bag. You will bring those items as an offering after the last day of the challenge, Nov. 29. Each day as you add your item to your bag, we encourage you to thank God for all His blessings and to pray for those that will receive the items you donate.

Below you’ll find our calendar list:

  • November 5 – Canned meat
  • November 6 – Peaches (can)
