Reverse Advent Calendar

Download Flyer

The Reverse Advent Calendar is a new Christmas tradition that we are going to start this year. Instead of a countdown to Christmas Day and the anticipation of receiving presents, you countdown to Christmas by collecting food items every day that will be given to the Moorpark Food Pantry just before Christmas.

The idea is very simple:

  1. Pick something to collect your food items in like a box or basket.
  2. Every day, put a food item in the box. Your choice or pick one from the suggestions.
  3. Bring the box to church for the Advent Service on December 20th.
  4. We will take all the boxes to the Moorpark Food Pantry in time for Christmas.

This is a way to encourage each other and our families to think of others as we countdown to Christmas during this Advent Season.
