Thrivent Action Teams

Thrivent Action Teams

If you are a Thrivent member you MAY have up to TWO Thrivent Action Teams available to you EACH YEAR. Each action team is designed to bring volunteers together and provides $250 in seed money to complete each project (plus awesome t-shirts).

Consider using one or both of your Thrivent Action Teams to benefit LOMC!

Take a look below at our current needs and fill out the simple form below to let us know you can help. You will need to log into your Thrivent account to see if your profile/account has Action Teams available.

From Thrivent’s Website:
Thrivent Action Teams make it easy to live generously. It starts with a simple question: “Who can I help and how?”
Next, identify a community need and grab friends and family to form a volunteer team and brainstorm ways to address it. Thrivent provides a customized kit of resources to kick-start your fundraiser, educational event or service project. Your team provides the people power to bring it to life.
