THRIVENT MEMBER NETWORK - GREATER IOWA REGION

Stories of Impact and Information

NEWS FROM OUR MEMBER NETWORK

Each event in your Thrivent Member Network gave attendees an opportunity to advance their "Wise With Money" journey and/or live generously by impacting nonprofit organizations in local communities. From our Faith Build kick-off and Habitat for Humanity neighborhood tour of homes to 4 retirement workshops presented by nationally known author, Tom Hegna, spring 2019 was busy! In 2019, we also offered events including "Thrivent Thursdays" - with coffee! - and one called Power of Membership to help members understand the variety of membership benefits they have at their fingertips. We also celebrated the Iowa/Iowa State game with a generosity & social event, impacted Veteran-serving nonprofits & played with service dogs on Veteran's Day, and asked our members to rally together to support Riverside Bible Camp for Giving Tuesday with a match opportunity of $20,000 (which was quickly surpassed). Wow, what a year!

Our Thrivent Member Network gives you the opportunity to help support and celebrate what’s important to you and your family.

The Thrivent Member Network - Greater Iowa partnered with Riverside Bible Camp for Giving Tuesday. Thrivent offered a $20,000 match for funds raised, and the camp raised over $90,000 that evening! We had a beautiful Christmas-decorated event including chili + cornbread supper, silent auction, giving tree, cookie + cinnamon roll sales, ornament sales, camp gift store, carols + worship songs, testimonials, and so much more!

On Veteran's Day, Thrivent members helped raise awareness and $400 for two Veteran-serving nonprofits: Retrieving Freedom and Patriots for Pets. The service dogs came out to visit, too! 

Power of Membership: Thrivent members enjoyed dinner and interactive learning stations to activate their Thrivent membership benefits and use them to impact their communities. Thrivent members enjoy the priviledge of making the most of their lives on their Wise with Money Journey!
