"Reverse Advent Calendar"For the food Pantry


Once again, Seward and Moose Pass UMCs will be doing a "Reverse Advent Calendar" to support the local food pantries. "What IS a Reverse Advent Calendar?" you might ask. Well, if many Advent calendars are a time to receive a little gift or token as we make our way to Christmas morning, this is the "reverse" of that. So, instead of GETTING something, we're GIVING something.


Each day of Advent, you are encouraged to purchase an item for the food pantry -- 24 items total -- and bring them to church to distribute to those in need. Some are choosing to take their children shopping throughout the season, buying items as the season progresses. Others are getting all of their shopping done at once. Pastor Jim found that it only cost about $40 to get the items all at once (depending on sales).


Here are the items. Again, just bring them to church during the season and we'll make sure they get to the food pantry.
