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.

Important Thrivent Information

       Choice Dollars: If you are a benefit member with choice dollars available, you must direct 2018 dollars before March 31 of this year or lose them. Please check your account online or by phone to see what you have available to contribute to a charitable organization of your choice (including Joy Lutheran).

     Action Teams: Associate members now have the capability to apply for 1 Action Team project each year, every year, not having a 3 year limit. If you have membership and have used your previous 3 year limit you can apply again in 2019. If your associate membership has expired, or anyone wishing to apply, you can make a family application for $19.95/year and have an opportunity for husband and wife to each qualify for $250 to lead a project every year.

     More Action Team information: All projects that are available for Thrivent members to lead and receive the $250 seed money are listed on a clipboard at the Information Center in the Narthex. You can sign-up directly on the clipboard OR you can sign-up online with a new application created by Christy. All this along with a new Action Team Guidelines sheet is available (and highly recommended) for reference to anyone making an application for a project.

     Sign-up for Thrivent Action Teams projects online in 3 easy steps:

  1. Click Here …… to go to our invitation page
  2. Enter your email address (you do not need to register an account)
  3. Sign-up for any of the projects that are labeled” SIGN UP” (labeled “FULL” projects are taken)

This process is a notification to Joy that you plan to lead a project and you still must make the application to Thrivent. To view and print the updated copy of Thrivent Action Teams Information and Guidelines, click here ……   They are also available at Joy in the narthex wall rack along with Thrivent membership application forms.


If you would like more information about Action Teams or Choice Dollars, check the weekly newsletter, Joy’s web page, posted information in the church narthex & hallway bulletin board or contact Jim & Bobbie Flatz.
