Thrivent Action Teams

If you are a member of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans you are able to receive two $250 debit cards for a Community Service or church project of your choice. The intent is to bring people together to take action and help others. It’s not about gifting money. If you prefer directing dollars to an eligible organization, rather than giving your time by leading a project.
