Thrivent Action Teams

Thrivent Action Teams

If you are a Thrivent member you have 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.

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.
