Thrivent Financial Updatesthrivent

Action Team Projects:
Thrivent benefit & associate members, please check out the bulletin board in the hallway for information and sign-up for projects that can be funded with $250 seed money from Thrivent. As of Oct 31st we have 76 projects listed for the year 2017 with  54 applications accepted and 51 projects completed. As of YTD, we have received $13,500 of seed money from Thrivent.    WOW!   Thank you for your support!

Choice Dollars:
Thrivent benefit members, If you have Thrivent Choice dollars available for use, we have an important message:  You can direct choice $ to any of 1,000+ non-profit organizations. If you choose Joy to receive this money, it will be used to fund the Capital Improvement Fund that Joy desperately needs. Thrivent members of Joy have the potential to direct $3,000 back to Joy. With approx. 85 Thrivent members at Joy, only 20-25 of qualify for this program, but less than half participate. The process is easy and quick – either by phone or on-line. Remember this is Thrivent’s money (not yours) and they are giving it away to a non-profit organization of your choice. As of May 1st, members of Joy have directed over $2,000 Choice Dollars to our Capital Improvement Fund.   WOWThank you for your support!

All Members of Joy:
If all of this seems somewhat confusing to you, you’re not alone. If you would like more information about these programs or clarification of your Thrivent status, you have three avenues:  1) Check out information on the table in the Narthex.  2) Talk to Jim or Bobbie Flatz in church or at home (715-262-5960).  3) Call Kim at John Levi’s Thrivent office at 715-425-2056.

Thrivent is looking for ways to give away millions of dollars with its non-profit status. Let’s help them, which in turn supports Joy, the community and many of our outreach programs.
