Reverse Advent Challenge

12:00 am - 12:00 am

Starting November 28th we are challenging you to give a reward on each day of Advent. By reward, we are talking about collecting a food item a day and putting them all together in a box which will be donated to The Backdoor Mission. Children and youth are encouraged to decorate your boxes! Packages are being collected on December 22nd. We are asking that you drop them off at Faith United Church, on that day, or let us know if you require it to be picked up.

A list of most needed items can be downloaded here. If you have any questions, please email office@faithunited.ca
Location: Faith United Church - Courtice, ON

“I’m always amazed when people walk up to me and say, ‘I’m a Christian.’ I think, ‘Already? You already got it?’ I’m working at it, which means that I try to be kind and fair and generous and respectful and courteous to every human being.”
+ Maya Angelou
