Introducing Thrivent Volunteers

Over the years, congregational coordinators and advocates have played an important role in introducing Thrivent generosity programs to churches.

In early February, eligible Thrivent members were designated 50 Thrivent Choice Dollars® as a thank you for representing Thrivent as a congregational advocate in your church.

As we move into the new year, we are renaming and changing the program to align with Thrivent's mission of helping members be wise with money. There are three very important components to this journey:

Own Your Story

Owning your story starts with embracing that everything is a gift from God – including money. And that we are called to be a wise steward of those gifts.

Practice Wise Financial Habits

Strive to manage God's gifts wisely by putting your values and plans into practical action. This can be anything from simple budgeting, to building insurance strategies, to saving, investing, retirement planning, an annual giving plan and more.

Give of Yourself

A key part of being wise with your gifts is sharing them. You don't have to wait for your finances to be perfect to give of your time, talents and treasures. You always have something you can offer others.
