This year, let's have a reverse Advent!
Pantry to benefit from Reverse Advent Calendar!
First Presbyterian Church REVERSE Pantry Advent Calendar!

Hello all! As you know, Advent calendars that we see today normally follow the formula that has a person opening one door on their Advent calendar each day of Advent to find a small gift (maybe a piece of candy or trinket.) Instead, this year, we would like to suggest a REVERSE Advent – instead of members of our congregation GETTING a small gift for every day of Advent – we set a goal of GIVING a gift to the Pantry each day, filling a box with Pantry supplies. We’ve created a list of specific needs the Pantry has, and included it here so that you can purchase more than one when you are shopping, but perhaps it could be an Advent ceremony in your household to each day add that day’s specified item to the box.
EACH DAY, ADD AN ITEM TO A BOX. ON CHRISTMAS EVE, BRING THE BOX WITH YOU TO WORSHIP SERVICE.
