Thrivent clients put generosity in action: Winter 2023

Thrivent Action Teams help clients make a difference in their communities.

SuperSenior fun

Sarasota, Florida

To help senior citizens create connections and fellowship, Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church hosts themed events throughout the year. Each gathering includes a meal, prayer, fellowship, humor and a special musical program. It’s emceed by a costumed character that fits with the selected theme.

Seniors have celebrated Winterfest with Frosty the Snowman, done Irish jigs with bagpipes and a leprechaun, recognized the Dawg Daze of Summer with SuperDog, enjoyed Mardi Gras with Cajun food and honored Oktoberfest with German cuisine. They even did a throwback to their senior prom.

Thrivent clients choose a month to lead a Thrivent Action Team, and they do the cooking, serving and clean-up for each event. The seed money helps cover the cost of food and supplies, enabling all to participate without a charge. Attendance ranges from 50 to more than 100 people.

SuperSeniors was founded by Norm Kurtz, Beautiful Savior member who organizes, serves as emcee and helps with food.

Helping to rebuild

Brenton, West Virginia

Lord of Life Lutheran Church members in Tabernacle, New Jersey, teamed up with Appalachia Service Project to help with home repairs for low-income families in West Virginia. Jamie Wagner led a Thrivent Action Team that traveled from New Jersey to West Virginia and rebuilt a porch for an elderly woman. They also sheet rocked and painted a bedroom for another family.

Filling essential needs

Chula Vista, California

John Cox led a Thrivent Action Team of children (and their parents) in the elementary age basketball/cheer program at New Hope Community Church to create health care packets for Mexican Medical Ministries. Families donated toothbrushes, toothpaste, combs, brushes, shampoo, washcloths and soap. The children assembled 230 packets, one for each child in the program.

Ending period poverty

Reading, Pennsylvania

Sherlene Evans, as part of the Reading Rotary Club, led a Thrivent Action Team to collect feminine hygiene products. The goal was to help alleviate the inadequate access to hygiene products, which is called period poverty and most often affects girls in families with financial constraints. The seed money helped buy additional supplies, which all were delivered to schools in the Reading School District.

Hit the hay 4 pooches

Cheyenne, Wyoming

Michelle Woerner led a Thrivent Action Team of students at East High School to design and build dog beds for a raffle to raise funds for K9s 4 Mobility. The event raised $4,800 in support of the local organization, which trains and places assistance dogs, increasing independence and confidence for the owners. Seed money was used to help purchase supplies.
